GC60: Color Challenge - Shades of Blue

While I was working on the "Shades of Blue" challenge at Gingersnap Creations, I realized I have not done "Fairies." Oh well! Ever since I bought this lovely "Alice" stamp from Scrolls Work, I have so wanted to use it. When I was trying to come up with something for the "Shades of Blue," Alice just kept popping into my mind! I was not sure how to keep it as blue as possible, but I think I kept her pretty in blue! I will tell you that I actually masked off all the critters and Alice to keep the background blue from bleeding in. I also decided to present her in a couple of ways! Since I did three of these delightful images, I have a third to figure out what to do with!
Along with the Scrolls Work stamp, I also used one of Tim Holtz new embossing folders, alcohol inks, and a brand new punch I just bought a Michael's for $6.99! Did that come in handy or what to go with Alice's flying cards? The embossing of the little cut-outs was quite a job!  Here is a close-up shot of Alice.  Notice the pink eye I gave the rabbit!
As always I appreciate your stopping by and visiting my blog and commenting! Have a most wonderful evening!
