ALICE ATC SWAP WITH DEB

 I can't tell you how excited I was to swap an Alice in Wonderland ATC with my friend, Deb Famularo!  Her blog badge for Sparkling Scrapbooks is on my sidebar.  She's one talented artist!  Her incredible work is all pink and glittery and fun!  It's no wonder she's coordinating the Paris Hilton Creativity Collection Design Team!  
I, on the other hand, am most comfortable using vintage photos and papers which is why I enjoy being on the Pages In Time Design Team. 
However, we both are lovin' everything artsy that has to do with Alice in Wonderland.

Just look above at Deb's ATC and how she accented Princess Alice with some glittery modge podge, millinery flowers, shiny garland, bumpy accented mushrooms, pink rhinestones and a sparKly crown!
And this is the ATC I sent to Deb:
 I used the Crafty Secrets stamp set, Copic markers, and flowers cut from a vintage post card offered on Suzee Q's Flickr group.  I made a background using the swipe and spritz technique with TH Ranger Distress Ink in Spun Sugar and then edged the card with Adirondack Gold Dabber Paint.   In honor of Deb, I called this ATC Alice, the Armenian Princess and added pink highlights to Alice's hair!

To Deb, I will always treasure this special gift from you.  And thanks for letting me use your amazing photos for our  post.
