Wonderland - a marvelous imaginary realm.....

Wouldn't it be nice to have a Wonderland to go to whenever life gets tough?  I was pondering that thought as I created this project for my Fabulous Friday Challenge at PCP i{heart}copics.  Now I have not read nor seen the movies Alice in Wonderland. Waiting for it to come out on DVD but my imagination has run wild with color while creating.

This week we are using a recipe for our challenge - now if you ask my husband he will tell you I am not very good with recipe's since I can NOT cook but this kind I can follow.

2 patterned papers
3 colored embellishments (with copics) - brads, ribbons, flowers, gems, chipboard
your image (any of your choice)

I chose a Sweet Pea image from the ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection called Mad Tea Party. I colored Alice and the March Hare in with my copics. You can get your copics like I do at i{heart}papers. Kate has all the colors at great prices.  She even has the new copic paper.  I added a few stickles to give some sparkle. A feather in Alice's cap and some white highlights from my white gel pen.  The DP papers I used are from Basic Grey and do you know Kate also sells Basic Grey too?  You just have to check out all the items available.  Now I suppose you want to know about the embellishments.  All 3 of my buttons started out as white buttons with a silver center.  I took my R29, B29 and FV2 and colored them to match my image.  I didn't stop there, I wanted a hat pin too so I started coloring pearls in the same colors to match.  You would be amazed with all of the things you can color with your copics! I printed the definition of wonderland from the dictionary on my computer and used it as my sentiment and my project was complete.

Now it is your turn to join us at the PCP group i{heart}copics cuz we know you do and show us what you come up with to color!
