Alice Themed ATC Swap

I have been looking for new groups and or swaps to participate in and was told about an Alice in Wonderland themed ATC swap through a friend in one of my groups, so of course I had to sign up!  My COF (Circle of Friends) Group is also doing an Alice themed challenge this month.  I did the COF project first so I took some of those elements that I used in my work for that and made it into a smaller format.

The rabbit is a stamp I picked up from Lost Coast Stampers and I have been trying hard to push myself into some different materials, so I even used some "bling" and glaze too.  I really like how the finished ATC turned out and I'm jetting to the post office today to mail them out.  I also took a pic of the 9 finished ATCs in the card sleeve because I just like the repetition of all of them arranged neatly together.

AS Birds in Hats Swap

I have just completed my Alpha Stamps Birds in Hats Swap entries.  The challenge was to design a set of 3 finished works, and you could do a second set if you wanted.  Originally I was all gung ho to do 6, but I was really struggling with my ideas once I sat down and actually started to work, so I decided to just stick with 3 in the end.  Overall I like how they turned out, and can't wait to see the fabulous works I get returned to me. (The postcards I just got back in the previous swap were AWESOME!  I have them posted up in my workspace already.)  There are a few things I would change about my creations, but I know better than to point out what I think are flaws, so I'll just keep it to myself!  Thanks for stopping by!  :)
