Down the Rabbit Hole (OAC1)

ALICE GETS GLAM: INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

Have you heard the curious news? A new challenge blog just started, Oh, Alice! For their very first challenge they want you to get glam. Just check out this awesome makeup kit that is your inspiration this week. I saw this ad a couple weeks ago and even had it torn out. Doesn't it scream pop up card? My hubby even pointed it out (and he never notices anything). When Jessica posted the first challenge and this was the inspiration I just about died. I took the challenge very literally, but you really could make anything Alice inspired. Let me know if you play along. I would love to see what you create.

I started my card with a Denami multi-tiered pop up card as my template. After covering it DP & CS, I stamped my images and colored and glittered them. The grass is a Martha punch and the frame on the mirror is from Making Memories. Lots of adhesive and pop dots later, and Alice is in an enchanted forest of mushrooms.
Update: I've been asked about the stamps. I borrowed these from my stamping friends. You can get similar ones on ebay, they come as sheets of rubber.
