Alice in Wonderland "Surprise" ATC

Hidden Surprise ATC
I created this "surprise element" ATC for a couple of challenges. The challenge going on at Altered Alice is to incorporate a disappearing element into your creation. Using a metal brad as a pivot, my ATC has a secret reveal. This was a new technique for me and it took a few tries to get it right, lol!

I also used the Bingo board on The Game for elements of my ATC. I used the collage image, paint, ATC, shimmer mist and fabric line. The Alice collage image is from Paper Imagery Designs. I used the same Tim Holtz rubber stamp with black ink (fabric) and gold paint on the botton ATC. I sprayed the image with golden shimmer mist and used a piece of yellow and white gingham for the fabric background.

I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:

The Altered Alice - disappearing element
The Game - Bingo
ABC Challenge - V is for vanish
The Stamp Man - precious metal
Allsorts - #168 heavy metal
Dilly Beans - bright colors
Card Makin Mamas - try something new
That Craft Place - vintage
The Crazy Challenge - anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy - include sentiment

I hope you spare a minute to visit the above mentioned sites. You will be amazed by the wonderful artwork on display.
