Two more fantastic blocks to see! Love the images and buttons on the vintage block and the steampunk block is awesome.

I received mine from SonjaBoo yesterday when I was leaving for work and had to spend the entire night wondering what was in that box.... I finally opened it this afternoon when I got home... and it was so worth the wait!

First off, I saw this when I opened the box, and my heart stopped...



I thought, oooooooh I really really really hope this means it's an Alice block!!!  I love Alice in Wonderland....

... and my hopes were met!  it is an Alice in Wonderland themed ATB - I LOVE IT!!!!!



This is the first face I saw - one of my favourite John Tenniel images that she woodburned and tinted with paint on the front.  The little feet are an hommage to Tweedledee and Tweedledum (they have little black heart feet, hard to see on the black surface), and the top is a totally awesome paperclay Chessie - more on his awesomeness later...

The sides are woodburned with a couple of Alice quotes - love!





The back is a red queen card - I love how the tinting makes it look like it could be woodburned too!



Here is a close up of the Chessie - OMG - is he not beautifully done???  He even has that look of Wonderland madness - LOVE IT!!!



Not only does he just look fantastic - but even more - HIS GRIN AND EYES GLOW IN THE DARK!!!!!!

BTW - it is very hard to take glow in the dark pictures, IMO - but here is after about 5 minutes exposure to the light



Thank you so much SonjaBoo - I love it love it love it!!!!

Oh, I'm so thrilled you like it! It was a blast to make. Grin I have to say, I have a new love for Alice in Wonderland now -- it was so fun to come up with ideas from that story!

This was an amazing swap -- thank you Onyxnox for being such a great partner!

The steampunk block is really great!
Love the rich gleaming gold.
And what a great Alice Block! Looks like we might be starting a wood burning trend on Craftster, Sonjaboo!  Cheesy

I know! When I saw yours I got so excited that someone else was working with wood burning. This was my second wood burning project and I'm really having a great time with it! It does stink up the house a bit though. My husband kept coming in to make sure I wasn't burning the place down.  Roll Eyes

Oh I really love the Alice in Wonderland block, I was just talking about making a block of that theme the other day! Now I have some great inspiration! Smiley

Everyone has done such an amazing job on this swap. I love all the blocks
