Alice in Wonderland Tea Table

by Amy Bowerman

Oops!  I’ve done it again!   I’ve gone and altered a wayward item again…when designing for the Altered Alice how can I not?  I’ve been down the rabbit hole all week with nary a moment  to spare.   It’s time to take a deep breath and relax.  Why it seems it’s time for tea…won’t you have a cup of tea with me?

Tea Table Tea Pots

Alice in Wonderland Tea Table

This month’s challenge is “Anything Goes”.  Yippy skippy!  I think I’ll go to my wonderland garden for some tea!  Where shall we set our tea cups and tea pots you ask?  Why on this lovely Alice in Wonderland tea-table I’ve created thanks to our fabulous sponsor…Alpha Stamps!  Here ye Here ye…read all about this “Wonderful” shop at the end of this post.  I will be providing links to all the wonderland goodies I used along the way.  A visit to Alpha Stamps is nothing short of a visit to Wonderland!

Tea Table

Alpha Stamps Alice in Wonderland Tea Table

This is how my Alice in Wonderland Tea Table looks now…but before the wonderland treatment…it wasn’t pretty!

Alice in Wonderland Tea Table Before

Can you say rusty and crusty?  Yuck!  We need a makeover stat!

Alice in Wonderland Tea Table with Krylon

Nothing a coat of Krylon can't fix!

Have no fear Krylon is here!  There ain’t nothing a fresh coat of Krylon can’t fix!

Alice in Wonderland Tea Table Stripes

Yipes! Stripes!

Using a Mix of Krylon Make it Stone Metallic, Krylon Metallic Silver, and Krylon Black Gloss paint I was able to turn what was once rusty and crusty into something fun and funky.  I used Martha Stewart Acrylic black paint to cover the table top before digging into my Alpha Stamps goodies.

Tea Table Mod Podge Top

Pretty please with Mod Podge on top!

I armed myself with an arsenal of Mod podge tools and my weapon of choice…a fresh jar of Mod Podge.

Tea Table Top
Tea Table Top with G45 papers and Collage Sheets from Alpha Stamps

 To create this collaged table top I used a mix of papers from Alpha stamps including  Kraft Reflections All Decked Out Scrapbook Paper from Graphic 45 for the playing card border.  The center is a mix of collage sheets Large Blue Caterpillar ATCs Collage Sheet (my personal fave),   Alice in Green Collage Sheetand I Wonder Collage Sheet   for the text and Alice Stamps along the sides along with the Mini Playing Cards.  The White Rabbit ATC collage sheet was also used…and you can get one too just for entering our challenge at the Altered Alice!  How cool is that?

Tea Table Foil Alice
Alpha Stamps on Foil Sheets

Here I have used  Alice’s Adventures Rubber Stamp Set to stamp and emboss my images on Ranger Foil tape.  Be careful not to handle the foil tape too much or you will wind up embossing your own fingerprints and the CSI’s will come after you! :)

Tea Table Side Closeup
Tea Time Utensils

 Beneath the Alice Stamps from the I Wonder Collage Sheet and Mini Playing Cards lined sides I have added Brass Flatware  and  Clock Face Buttons to the lip of the table.

Tea Table Legs
The Tea Party continues…

Here I have embellished the ring around the table legs with Silver-Plated Teacup, Teapot, and Spoon charms.  Can you see the subtle texture on the silver part of the legs from the Krylon Make it Stone Metallic?

Tea Table Garden
Garden Tea Party

 Everyone is ready for tea in my Alice in Wonderland Garden!  Thanks for coming to my tea party today.  The party continues over at the Altered Alice until May 25th…don’t be late this is a VERY important date!  You can read all about our challenge and our wonderful sponsor below.  There’s still time to save big on Wonderland supplies at Alpha Stamps…I’m heading there now…I’ve got holes on my Alice in Wonderland Dresser that can only be filled by Alpha Stamps!

Have a “Wonderful” day!

Donna you are too sweet! I would settle for a phone call from Mackenzie Child’s asking me to design for them but we must shoot for the moon right? I just visited your lovely Alice Birdcage and I too have a long list of goodies to add from Alpha Stamps. Gosh I would live there if they would let me :)
