Alice in a Field of Mushrooms

Hello! Did you enjoy the Hop yesterday? I am so excited about the new images coming out at Sweet Pea Stamps! While I wait for the rest of mine to arrive, I thought I would play with Alice again and use her a little differently. This time I cut her out of her background (I also wiped away the ink form her hand and the bottom of her dress where the table legs cross it before I stamped her so I could draw a teacup in her hand.) I drew some mushroom cap shapes on the DP I wanted to use, cut those out, then drew some stems on white paper and colored them with my Copics. The "Drink Me" is from the Alice Sentiments set.

I was inspired to make this card from the challenge over at the Oh Alice challenge blog. It was to be inspired by this makeup case:
I was inspired by the mushrooms and Alice walking in the middle of them.

The Details:
Stamps: Elaine Cox Alice Drink Me (sheet 2, Plate 35 ), Alice Sentiments (Plate 37) - Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper: Fancy Pants Designs, Razzelberry Dark (Prism), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Walnut Distress Ink
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E50,Y21,Y26
Mushroom Stems: E50,E53,E55,E57
Misc: Stardust Stickles

I hope you have a magical weekend!
