Go Ask Alice

Hermine’s theme for Wednesday Stamper this week is

“Alice in Wonderland”

I created a postcard on water color paper … adhering  junk paper for the background along with a piece of the inside of a security envelope … tucking Alice into a photograph of our forget me not teacup

go-ask-alice

*click if you would like to see details *

I hand colored the black and white image of Alice, using paints, the image is from this great website


here are the stamps I used for my postcard

I can hardly wait to see the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland moviedue to be released in the US on 5 March … we saw 3D previews and it looks fantastic!

*Note: the ‘handwriting’ is a Lewis Carroll font that I picked up at the same website as the Alice image, see above for link*

  7. I also love this postcard. Question – did you handwrite the copy on the “open book” stamp using the Alice story? Love that addition. Once again, another beauty from our very talented Patty – *crowd roars* hugs, : )

  12. I was so impressed by the way you incorporated your rubber stamps. I had to look long and hard at the design on the “M” stamp to see how you had used it. You are the MASTER of using your stamps to your advantage.

    What a treat, dear friend! I always learn something when I visit your blog each day. Coming to your blog is like a daily art lesson.

  25. I love the Alice. Just to see you turn the stamp upside down! You make me think. I love the Feb. dress too. I am going to do this challange. So far all I have is the cigar box covered in the inside. Somehow I want to Steampunk the clothes. I’m working these days on my peep entry to the Washington Post. Takes too much time. But I can eat my mistakes.

  38. Patty, your Alice piece is simply amazing. I love all the fabulous stamps and fancy papers, including the security paper from an envelope. Your flamingo is so perfect sitting on what I know must be one of your own very gorgeous tea cups.

    Your blog header has such beautiful greens. Also, love the swan.
