Following Alice

This week's challenge at Dragons Dream Tag It On was chosen by lovely May who chose the theme "Following Alice" which is to include Alice, the rabbit and a situation (and the obligatory use of at least one stamp and for it to be on a tag).
I used some of the fabulous Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland papers and cut out Alice, the rabbit and a Cheshire Cat. The tag itself was die cut from some more of the paper. I used the bottom of a die cut dress form for the pedestal of the table and a scalloped die cut for the table top. I edged it all in Vintage Photo Distress Ink (I know I use this ink on everything but it really seems to suit!) 
The flower and leaves are Wendy Vecchi stamps and the centre of the flower was inked with a blue Distress Ink and covered with Glossy Accents. The corked bottle was filled with Barn Door Reinker and water and tied with twine and a little button my sister gave me!
The banner was die cut and stamped with some individual letter stamps in Sepia Archival Ink. I then added the obligatory Vintage Photo Distress Ink and folded it! I added more twine as a ribbon and slightly curled it. 
I hope you pop over and see what the other DT members have made - I have had a sneak preview and they are amazing! And then, when you've had a peek, why not join in?! I'd love to see what you make.

This is fabulous, I love the spiders web and how you've converted your die cuts. I can't bring myself to cut into my Halloween in Wonderland papers - stoopid I know 'cos I'll save them 'till they're old then not use them 'cos they're dated!
