Alice

Simply B Stamps can't have a Wonderland Collection without an Alice now can they?!  Here she is, Miss Alice herself.  I looked just like this when I was little and so did my sister Rhonda, yellow hair and all but my eyes are hazel.  Funny because my brother and sister Robin both have red hair. 
 
I colored Alice with Copics.  I have been trying to tweak my techniques as I have been asked to do some video tutorials.  I really like the way her face came out.  I still need a bit of practice though.  I work with some amazing ladies whose coloring blows my socks off.  See...naked feet.
 
The main background paper is from Jazzy Pattern's Wonderland collection.  The checkerboard paper is actually from a Twilight paper pack.  You know I love Twilight!!!  I ran the gold piece through my BigShot with a Tim Holtz Pocket Watch folder.  Does anyone have trouble with the TH embossing folders?  They give a really deep impression, which is awesome, but sometimes it is too deep.  I rip a lot of paper with his folders.  I again made this one 5x7 so I could frame the entire set and I did it all with my crafting tiara atop my head. 
 
I don't know if you can see in the picture but Alice, the potion bottle, the watch and the playing cards on the bottom are all popped up.  I don't think it came through well on the picture.  Please head over to SBS and see what the others have created with this fabulous image.  Then come back tomorrow, we will not only be previewing the final image but we will be having a blog hop as well.  Hope to see you then.
 
Thanks for stopping by.  FTPD & NLG
