Dear Alice


Time for another Anything Goes at The Sugar Bowl but remember you must use a stamp from Funky Kits. Now mostly these are Sugar Nellie stamps of course but they also sell some Gorjuss Girls. I made this card for a friend's Birthday. I have to say the image was quite a challenge to colour and of course I chose the colour I find most challenging to use, purple. It doesn't matter which pens I have used over the years I have always found purple the most difficult, both in terms of blending and bleeding. However I got there with the second image I tried and I love it. I kept to the Alice in Wonderland theme with the crockery and playing card.

Medium - Copics
Papers - First Edition New Bloom and an oddment

I love the purple hair Marianne. What a super card.
Reds tend to be my problem area as they also bleed quite a lot (I've ruined many an image by using red on the lips).
