Alice for Anis

This is the Alice in Wonderland birthday card I made recently for my daughter Anis, who loves Alice.  It's more of a mini book as it has some pages.  I used 3 scalloped 6 by 6 card blanks and stuck them together after I had finished all the pages. 




As you can see I did a lot of die cutting in silver miri and white card to make the mounts.  Good old distress ink, my favourite,  was used to graduate the colour.  The backgrounds were done using the resist technique and distress inks over the top..  All the stamps were from the Alice set by Clear Art Stamps.




The black stamping is Archival black and embossed in clear ink, you have to be quick to do this but it does give a really deep black and is my favourite.




As you can see I used different shapes of die cuts for the mounts for each two pages.  I used the out of the box technique to die cut the Mad March Hare as his ear was sticking out.





I really enjoyed making these and would have made more pages but as usual I was in a rush as we were due to go on holiday in a few days.  I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  All comments wonderfully appreciated  :)
