Alice...

 is a bit of a Sunday Stamper... And she has Lots to Do... 
Happy Easter Peeps, Hope everyone is having a lovely bank holiday break.. {i'm working unfortunatly}

As you may have already guessed this is my entry for both of the above challenges. SS having a 'Lace' theme and LTD being 'Black & White'
I decided while looking through some boxes that i had far too many jigsaw pieces and it was about time i altered one... I started by cutting a rectangle hole and then painting the piece with a couple of coats of gesso and snow dabber, once dry, i made up and attached a little shadow box type thingy behind the hole i had cut to house a little bottle that i salvaged from an old air freshener, i filled this with some beads and topped it with wire and cloth.
I've used 3 of the fabby new Mabel Lucie Attwell Alice stamps available exclusively from The Artistic Stamper
who will be at next weekends
bssbs @ Ally Pally stand 49
I also used a section of my diamonds stamp for the background.
It was looking a bit bland untill i stamped 2 of the images onto photo paper and cut them out and mounted them and a few extra tags about the piece and now.. well its fit for a wonderland !!
I am getting really excited about Ally Pally now... And am looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting some new ones too. So if you happen to see me, do stop and say Hello, i'd love to meet you x
