The Altered Alice!

This is my first time playing a challenge at The Altered Alice!  The challenge is to use colors of Blue and Yellow and is being sponsored by Artistic Outpost!  Now it just so happens, that I have the Alice in Wonderland set from Artistic Outpost and have used them often.  I love that set!  Since we were playing at the Altered Alice, I did!  I masked off the King from Alice and he was replaced!  Removing the King, was a bit complicated, but not impossible!  A crown was created from another little stamp within this set and I added bling!  This was not easy to cut out!!  The background is a collage of various items from the stamp set.  The time piece I clear embossed, inked the background with blues and yellow and then stamped my various images in black and blue.  I then dry ironed between blank newsprint paper to remove the raised embossing.  The frame was colored with alcohol inks and then embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  A couple of time piece were added to the frame.  The image and frame were adhered to another chipboard frame for dimension and then mounted with dimensionals.  It really has a nice pop to it! Camera picture is a bit brighter than the actual card.  Either bright or gray today!!

This was fun, challenging and fun again!  Thank you visiting me today!  Have fun and go create.

Lynne Phelps said...

Thanks for playing along with The Altered Alice!!! GREAT card, love all the details on the making of it. I do that too and I always wonder if people get tired of all the explanation, but I so enjoy reading details on others' posts so I guess I'll keep listing every step, lol!!! Love the deep rich blues you achieved, and the way you creating the "crowning" scene with Alice and the Dodo is brilliant - literally! Taking the extra step of ironing away the clear embossing is interesting. I thought you might have stamped with white pigment ink at the end, but it looked to crisp for that. Hope we'll see you back next month!
