VIP blog hop!

Welcome to the VIP blog hop and shop for My Favorite Things! There are two sets that are being shown in the hopping tonight and I am showing you "Costumes from Wonderland"! I was thrilled to see this set as it tickles my vintage bone and I loved the newest adaptation of Alice in Wonderland in the theatres.

You can scroll to the bottom to see all the logistics and details of this VIP hop!

A little about my project....well I searched through the (not so little) pile of patterned paper and found this vintage pad that I had bought by Prima! It was beyond perfect for this...as you see the hare with his watch!
I wanted to create a little bookmark, after all we have a couple of Alice in Wonderland books in our house.

I stamped Alice on the front and colored her with copics...what I loved is that I could color her dress to match my paper, it didn't have to be baby blue in this case. I stitched her on with my sewing machine creating a little pocket for my bookmark. The sentiment also fit the size of this card well and I stamped it along the top.

Here is a photo of the bookmark removed. I love this character balancing her tea cups! I went with my patterned paper and added an eyelet to the center of the "O" in Once upon a time. I had a little scrap of prima ribbon trim that went out the side of my bookmark...because everything in wonderland is a little unconventional.
Here is a close up of Alice colored. I paper pieced her little apron too.
Tip: to get a vintage look I went over my entire image after coloring her with my W00 marker. This helped blend her into the tones of my paper.
Finally, here is a closer look at the bookmark. They were so much fun to color! What a fun little birthday card to add to my stash for special occasions!

Hopefully you came here from Kim's Blog as she is the queen of MFT and the beginning of the hop too!
