Grinning like the Cheshire cat

Good Monday morning everyone and it's time for some more Wonderland inspiration for my weekly design team post for Visible Image. This new release is going down a storm in the crafting world and people are falling in love with these quirky characters all over again.
Today I am sharing my sample made with the fabulous Cheshire cat.

 As I adore all things cat, he is one of my favourites even though I genuinely love them all.
I decided to make a rather "out of this world" background for him so I got out my black card and distress oxides.
and made up a purple based galaxy background.
I took the time tunnel stencil

and added gold ink through it. In real life this really shimmers.
I coloured my cat with Promarkers and cut him out. I also stamped and gold embossed the words onto black card.  I then put my design together.

Here it is
I stamped the "invisible" cat face stamp in the gold rays and added the fun claw marks too.
 I added glossy accents to his eyes for extra mad shine!
The little fish stamp is such fun and I think this sentiment sums a lot of us up particularly when crafting!
Inside the card I could not resist stamping this....
and one final photo

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
