a Tiny Tale of Alice

I have a collection of Alice In Wonderland books;
it started in childhood . . . so why not add one
of my own making??










Here it is opened . . .

All the stamped images are from Lost
Coast Designs, available at Blockheads
--there
are some fabulous fairy tale
and Alice stamps, very detailed and inspiring. The base
book is textured black cardstock, along with some Basic
Grey Fusion paper, StazOn in Jet Black, and crayon.

You didn't really expect me to make something without
crayons, did you???

;)

Challenge, anyone?
The Cheerful Stamp Pad--ready for this? Birds of a Feather!
Altered Alice--stripes
Penny's Paper-Crafty--birds
Basic Grey Challenges--something new (one of the stamps, the book form)
Moving Along With the Times--spots and/or stripes
Simon Says Stamp--spots or stripes

Have a great weekend, everyone--stay warm!
