Alice in Wonderland Fat Page

Alice in Wonderland Fat Page
I had fun creating this Alice in Wonderland fat page. The size is 4 x 4. The Alice image is a digital stamp from Dilly Beans and the flowers are a clear stamp from Inkadinkado. I created the background from a page torn from a damaged book. I drew on it with watercolor crayons and then spritzed it with shimmer mist and smeared it around a little with a baby wipe. I was experimenting and love how it turned out. I cut out some of the flowers and attached them just by the centers to give the card some dimension.

The fat page is embellished with glimmer mist, fabric, and rhinestones. I am very happy with the finished piece. I hope it makes you smile also!

I am entering this fat page in the following challenges:

Octopode - garden
Altered Alice - bright flowers/garden
Smudgy Antics - flowers, fabric, shimmer/sparkle
