Painting the Rosed Red
ALTERED ALICE this month so paint has to be used somewhere on projects. The paint I've used is red Pergamano Pintura.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do until I saw that one of the Dover Publications freebies last week was a page from a children's Alice colouring and puzzle book, the maze was just what I wanted so I made this easel card.
I coloured the maze with Promarkers and used the paint on the roses and card men then attached it to the easel card that I'd covered with spotty paper. I made the roses with torn red paper that had a white core so I used the paint to get rid of this but left a little bit of the white showing. I attached some die cut leaves and the roses to the card. The rose bottom right has been made with an Artistic Stamper stamp that I decided to leave white. I rounded the corners of some small playing cards then attached them to the card base, the last thing that I did was to paint some splats on the cards.
For the leaves I used Marianne Design and Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations dies.
