Kraftin'Kimmie Alice in Wonderland









Today I'm sharing a card I made using a Kraftin' Kimmie image called Alice in Wonderland. I'm playing along with the Krafty Girls and this weeks challenge is a sketch.

When I got this stamp I just couldn't wait to color up her hair.  She was a lot of fun to color with all her wisps, folds, and pleats.  I had this really kewl Halloween Wonderland paper that I wanted to use for this image so I used the colors in the paper. Even though Alice is traditionally blonde I love her with this fierce red hair. Once I had her done, she reminded me so much of my youngest darling daughter, Stevie with her beautiful red flowing locks and freckles.(yes that's her given name and named after Stevie Nicks) My Stevie is turning 21 on the 21st of June this year. She's a Summer Solstice baby and I always told her that made her extra special. Sharing the sun signs of both Cancer and Gemini. I decided I'd make this her birthday card and save it until then. Wow, I feel so ahead of the game! Maybe I should get started on birthday cards for my other three kids, and 5 grandchildren.  Ohhh that's a whole lot of Birthday cards coming up.
Here's a picture of my Stevie.
