Alice, It's Cold Outside!

Hi my cold and hot friends around the world!  I am freezing in South Mississippi something I can rarely say!  So you know it is Nan with you today! I found a watercolor technique on Youtube (yep, being sick gives one lots of time to watch others and get inspired to do so many things one doesn't feel like doing!) and sadly I can't find it to get the person's link!  I used it to make 3 bookmarks using the Rabbit with watch, Cheshire Cat, Hatter, and Rabbit with trumpet set and Alice from the set with  Queen and Sitting Queen. I sprinkled with acrylic white paint with a lot of water and made some sprinkle stars close to the figures and in the sky.

I didn't want to tape them down to photo because the whole watercolor look and the white trim around it makes for a very loose natural look so I just went with it.

They are stamped in green to keep from overpowering the light colors; I colored them with Prismacolor makers.

I used a limited palette on these to go with the background.

I hope you enjoy our event celebrating Alice in Winterland!  I know I will enjoy saving my space in my book to snuggle back down into the comforter with one of these Alice bookmarks!  All the event information and monthly challenges are all listed at the  Lost Coast Portal to Creativity so go over and have a good look!  Lots of fab chances to get stamp money to shop in the stores!
