Alice by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

I have a birthday card to share with you today that I made recently for my youngest niece. Sometimes I love making something that leaves a good proportion of white space and this is one of those makes.

Here’s what I did:-

Starting with a piece of inkable white card, I stamped the image of Alice and as I wanted to build the background up I masked her off using masking gum. 

I then stamped the white rabbit behind her, carefully lining him up using a stamp positioner, I then masked off the white rabbit again using the gum. I then added the stencilled background lightly stencilling with Distress ink. 

Once the Distress ink had totally dried I then rubbed off the masking gum to reveal the stamped images which I then coloured using Spectrum Noir Pencils. 

To finish I added the stamped hearts, you can’t have Alice in Wonderland without red hearts, again coloured with Spectrum Noir Pencils. I have added a little bit of sparkle to them using Distress Stickles. 

I then stamped the sentiment and matted onto red card and then onto an 8’ x 8’ card blank.

Here’s what I used:-

Sentiment – from my stash
Red Card
Card Blank

Hope you like and I’ll see you next week
