Alice in Wonderland Handmade Embellishments

Embellishments by Paints and Glitter!

Happy May!

This theme is still going! I made these embellishments to participate in a swap. It was my favorite part of this project, and I had tons of fun using items that I truly enjoy creating with. I knew that the images I was using were small, but they had the vintage look I really like, and they really inspired me to use vintage-style ephemera. So, I made my own!
I first stamped and altered the paper bags I decided to house the little embellishments. I used several stamp sets and Ranger Liquid pearls in Bronze, as well as Rub on roses.
This Hat stamp was perfect! I also used a white pen, and gold acrylic pen to make the images stand out.
For some of the tags, I added gold paint and glitter to make the images stand out. I backed these with photo paper.
To tie in the theme, I sent my partner an Alice in Wonderland necklace. I altered some Chip board to create matching packaging.

For this embellishment, I made a heart with Plaster of Paris, which I then painted in Gold and Pink. I stamped the image of Alice and the Flamingo on Chipboard, and painted it to match the paper I used for the chipboard in the background. I also added glitter, mulberry flowers, several small dies, a pink  button and -of course, pink feather trim!

Here is a closeup of rolled flowers I made with the paper collection, and other flowers I made using miniature playing cards.
For this embellishment, I used outdoor Vinyl to make a gold key, and made the hearts with plaster which I painted in Gold and black, and added black gems, and black papers to ground the images of Alice and the Rabbit. 
This image was stamped on a chipboard heart, I painted and sealed it, and backed it up with dies covered in Washi Tape. I finished it with a "fun" sentiment and rolled flowers. 
This small embellishment has Alice carrying the pig, and I used a small blue bow with a black gem, washi tape, and rolled flowers to keep with the theme. I used Heidi Swap papers as well as other collections throughout. 

My favorite embellishment also got a Rabbit image which I cut out using my Cricut Explore Air 2. I added glossy accents to areas to make him stand out. He is backed with Watercolor paper, that I hand-colored hearts onto. I also cut a heart out of DCWV fabric, and hand-wrote "Curious" as well as colored the edges to match. I made and painted the roses, to make them look like they had been painted Red, and also finished this piece with tulle and hot pink eyelash trim. 

I hope that this inspires you to create your own embellishments. Use what is in your stash of goodies!! I had so much fun creating all of these, that I had a hard time parting with them.
Thank you for going on this journey with me! I appreciate your comments and likes! If you prefer to see a video, here is a link:
