Something about Alice

Realised yesterday morning that I needed to get a couple of pages dome for the deco book swap I'm in.  I made a booboo last month and sent one lot off too early (we do one set a month) and thought I could relax as I was a month in hand - wrong! The one I did early was due by 3 rd May and I still needed to do a set for 3 April.

Luckily the theme was Alice in Wonderland and I have two sets of Alice stamps so I set to work yesterday and managed a couple, plus a card to go with them so they will be posted tomorrow.

Watch stamped on card-backed metal and glossy accents (not quite dry here) background is coloured with spray inks - 'Sticky Fingers' and overstamped.

Bottle from a PaperArtsy sheet is also covered with glossy accents.

Same background but used a home-made heart template and some oil pastels.

Limited time for crafting this week as our elder Gson is staying with us for the week and then Mum and the rest of the family join us next Saturday for the weekend.  Not used to having a 15 year old boy in the house - don't they take up a lot of room?  Only joking - love him to bits and we don't get to see him as often since they moved to Bristol.

These turned out lovely, Ann! Are they similar to "chunky pages"? Does the recipient bind them into a book at some point?
