Happy Alice !

I'm Alice mad at the moment I think !!

Here is a card I made as an entry for The Altered Alice challenge blog which has a theme of 'Stripes' this month.  The stripes in my piece are used as a background which I made using double sided adhesive applied onto a square piece of card and dusted over with metallic mica powders in bronze, copper and two types of gold.  Each stripe is individually applied and coated until the whole square is completed.

I then used chess piece rubber stamps from a plate by Chocolate Baroque to stamp a base onto the stripey card with black Archival ink.

More chess pieces were stamped and trimmed and Alice herself stamped and coloured with alcohol ink pens.  These were trimmed out and  mounted on foam pads for depth. 

The text stamp was stamped directly onto the base card also.  The whole thing was mounted onto a mat of gold mirri board and then onto a background made by passing a square of Coredinations 'black magic' through the Sizzix machine using an embossing folder and this was sanded back to reveal the orange core.

Alice ATC's

Here are a set of three Alice in Wonderland themed ATC's done as a swap over on UK Stampers Forum.  I have used a variety of techniques all on serendipity type backgrounds.

Some images have been stamped in Archival black ink onto card and trimmed with minimal colour added with alcohol ink based pens before sticking in place.

Some heat embossing in silver followed by colouring with souffle pens was used on the Hatter image.

Alice herself was left entirely monochrome.

Sixes & Sevens

First post of this New Year !!  This is a 6 x 4 inch postccard made as part of a challenge on UK Stampers Forum.  The subject this month is 'Numbers'.  The postcards have to be able to be posted naked to your swapee too so no big and bulky embellishments. I started with a large card bingo board trimmed to size.

I used stamped images from Lynne Perrella and Paper Artsy, scrapbook paper fragments and punched elements along with self adhesive numbers collaged with paper Mod Podge.

All the elements were edged in chalk inks and some penwork was added with  gold, white and black Posca pens.

Finally the whole postcard was painted with more paper Mod Podge to seal.
