Alice in Wonderland Swap - what i made.

wrapping up the parcel
another good excuse to use my button stamps :o)

and here is why i ran over the time allowance
i designed this cross-stitched piece in stages and then just ignored my design
and free-styled it in the end to tie in all the motifs,
this was the second attempt and i very nearly abandoned it but i think i got it right in the end.

a Wonderland themed button card

an "eat me" pincushion jar full of sweeties

Wonderland stick puppets

a set for making more
puppets/bookmarks/card toppers

my swap partner was Kitschycoo
check out her blog
she always makes me smile
even her last post telling us she is suffering
with a case of fatal tonsilitus


This fantastic craft swap was arranged by the wonderful MeridianAriel
who brought us other amazing swaps such as the Fairytale swap, the 80's fantasy film swap and the Owl swap {please read in the voice of Troy McClure}

see everyone elses photo's here in the flickr group

I loved the idea of stamp. Here in Brazil we do not have these reels of line, I thought I could do with bottle cap soda. Once you've put on my blog and show you!
This kind of paper I used a glue weaker than the sticker wall then it is easier to remove it.

Excuse my English! hahaha

Thanks for commenting.

that is very cool! I found your blog through geek crafts, very awsome! The cross stitch looks very... complex. It looks as if you have spent a lot of time on this. Your work is fantastic! N.b. you have now gotten me addicted to various amounts of craft blogs and have therefore caused me to make my own blog, thank you.
