DT Project #2 by Minxy : Featuring:

7 Dot Studio Wonderland Collection 
Chocolate Baroque 'The Art of Chess' Stamps
Hi snazzy folks
Here I am back with my second project of the month.
This time I decided to do a scrapbook layout, The wonderland papers scream out to be used in this way so who am I to argue with it.

I started with a a sheet of 'royal garden' wonderland paper,  I then created a checker board with a stencil and black and white adirondack acrylic paint dabbers
Next I got some old playing cards and coated then with gesso and distressed the edges with a paper distresser.
Then I added the photo's to the centres of the king and queen cards, using the ace of hearts for the middle card. 

To carry on the wonderland theme I stamped the 2 largest sets of chess pieces onto kraft card in black archival and cut them out. I placed 2 by the king and 2 by the queen.

To finish I added some of the wonderland stickers and die-cuts, along with some mini playing cards that I also gesso'ed and distressed.
And edged everything with a pastel crayon in a similar colour to the background.

I hope today's layout has inspired you to get out your papers and play today, 
I'm back on friday with my final project of the month to delight your eyes lol
Till Then Stay Inky
