Going a little out of my comfort zone…

I thought I’d try something new. I fell in love with Tattered Lace’s Country Manor dies and bought Alice. I love her southern belle look. It arrived and I immediately die cut the whole shebang….but…then what? I looked online for inspiration and I knew I wanted her to be coming out of a frame but I also wanted a garden in the background. I didn’t have any paper and thought about downloading a bucolic

garden scene but felt guilty for trademark reasons so I squashed that idea and took out my watercolors and began painting my own scenealice1.

I know it’s busy but I kinda like it. I messed up coloring (with Copic) the bird in her outstretched arm but instead of starting over, I just lopped it off…so now, she’s just strolling along.

This is a difficult die to cut….and extremely delicate to put together with all the small parts that need to be glued.

If anyone has any tips on using this die set, I am all ears!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
