Alice in Wonderland

Well, I know we all think of Alice as a sweet little girl, but hey this Alice is one of the Octopode stamps and I couldn't resist using her for this hanging.
I struggled a bit with our new Try it on Tuesdays  theme. Which is to 'Create an Altered piece of Art', that was inspired by a Childrens Book . Pop over for all the information and see the super  pieces that our guest designer and my fellow teamies have made.
So how was I inspired. First of all, I have to refer to the Craft Retreat, when Michelle, gave us all a gate hanging, comlete with watering can, flower and insect.  "Alter this over the weekend ", she said and show us what you did.
I had the Alice stamp with me , so  an alternative ' Alice in Wonderland'  tending her magical garden, came to mind.,  all I had to remember was not to mention the next TioT's theme.
 The white rabbit and words are by Crafty Secrets. The fence was toned down with vintage photo distress inks, the colouring is cosmic shimmer watercolours.
The mushrooms were my own creation, don't think I would fancy eating these. Luckily I had a few embellishments that fitted,  the Martha Stewart edger I borrowed from Siobhan and  the flowers were  made with Liz's papers.  Thankyou both.
Thankyou  for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
