Everyone wants to go down the Rabbit Hole with Alice. So we are going to create our very own Rabbits Hole card using pages from a vintage Alice in Wonderland book!
If you don't not have any old books, you can easily find them in charity shops, Jumble sales, and online auction sites.
I carefully removed 7 pages from an old vintage Alice in Wonderland book
I cut a circle in the first page and decreased the size of this circle on each following page.
I edged the inside of the circle with brown ink and adhered the pages on top of one another using clear 3D sticky pads
I watercoloured my stamped images of Alice, Leaves and a small Butterfly, and fussy cut each of them.
I mixed some Ruby Slippers paint into a spoonful of fine texture paste and swept it into one of the roses on the stencil.
I used a versamarker inkpad to stamp the script onto my 7x7 card blank. I used Teal luscious over the versamarker dabbing it lightly with a brush.
When the Rose was dry I brushed ultra thick Slap it on over it to give it a glossy finish.
I adhered Alice, the leaves and rose onto the Rabbit Hole
I adhered the rabbit hole onto the card and arranged the leaves and butterfly around it.
I added a finishing touch by stamping Alice onto the front of the envelope.I think I may add some colour to Alice...
There is lots more inspiration on the Indigoblu blog
Thank you so much for coming down the Rabbit Hole with me today. I hope to see you again soon.

Alice has fallen down the Rabbit Hole and has magically found herself in Winterland!
I created the background with watercolours and I used Indigoblu stamps for Alice and the tree.
I squeezed some glossy accents onto the top of the picture and let it drip down to look like icicles and then shook a generous amount of fine white glitter over the top.
I used glass beads at the bottom of the picture for Alice to stand on, I hope she does not get too cold!
Thank you so much for visiting myself and Alice today we are all mad here ; )

My year with The Mixed Media Mojo Design Team has concluded, and this is my final project.I used the White Rabbit from Alice for my first project, so I thought I would use him again for my final project.
When dry I coloured the Rose blue, and adhered Alice and the White Rabbit onto the book page.
Play along with Mixed Media Mojo Challenge this month the theme is New and the twist is Clocks. There is a whole new Design Team so be sure to pay them a visit.
Thank you for visiting, may you enjoy every day of the new year.

In the winter, Wonderland becomes Winterland, and Alice loves to walk in the snowy forest.
I painted the top of my 20cm (8inch) canvas with Iced Gem paint, and randomly painted on Snow White metallic paint on the bottom. I used the star stencil and Slap it On to add some raised stars to the top of the canvas and also painted those pink.
I used Archival Olive Ink pad to stamp the trees from the Winterland wood stamp set. I stamped the two distance trees without reinking the stamp, so it gave a more faded and distant look. I used white paint to add snow to the trees which was followed by flitterglu and white glitter.
I stamped and coloured Alice from the Indigoblu Alice stamp set, and stamped the bunnies in black Archival from the Winterland set. I fussy cut them all out and adhered them to the canvas.
I spread glass bead gel medium to the bottom of the canvas to give some glistening texture to the snow. When it was dry, I lightly added white paint to some areas.
I Die cut some snowflakes and stars in various sizes and covered them in Flitterglu and white glitter. I adhered them to the top of the canvas using sticky foam pads.
Thank you so much for visiting, I hope to see you again soon.

I made this especially for this months challenge at Artistic Stamper which is All Things Distress. This lovely Alice in Wonderland stamp is made by Artistic Stamper,but it is several years old so I am not sure if they still make it.
I water coloured the images, and placed them on an Indigo Blu vintage paper with a pocket watch on it. I ran an emery board around the edges to give it a more distressed look. I think the poor creature being put into the pot is very distressed indeed !
Must dash I'm late for a very important date ! : )

These are my three Alice in Wonderland ATC's for the All Things Alice blog swap, being run by Marion.
I hope all the Alice fans will like them !
I printed out a page of text from the story which I found here and lightly coloured it over with several different colours of inks. This became my background for the ATC.
I decided to use the new Alice stamps by Carabelle Studios, which I love! Water colouring is my favourite way to add colour to stamped images. I much prefer it to pens or pencils.
I added some white pearl spots to the toadstool, and stamped some more images onto the background.
Thank you for visiting please let me know what you think.....
