The Fish-Footman began by producing from under his arm a great letter, nearly as large as himself, and this he handed over to the other, saying, in a solemn tone, `For the Duchess. An invitation from the Queen to play croquet.' The Frog-Footman repeated, in the same solemn tone, only changing the order of the words a little, `From the Queen. An invitation for the Duchess to play croquet.'
Then they both bowed low, and their curls got entangled together.
--Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
It's a brand new month and a brand new challenge for The Altered Alice and this month's theme is Going Postal in honor of the fab new release from Stamp Attack, our sponsor this month. Just like the Queen's letter to the Duchess, our challenge this month is to create something with a postal theme - stamps, postcards, letters, envelopes; however you choose to interpret that. I live near San Francisco, CA, a city known for it's tourism so I was inspired by the postcard booklets you find in shops all over the city. Each of the cards showcases one of the new Wonderland faux postage stamps just released by Stamp Attack.
The Design Team will be showcasing the two new offerings from Stamp Attack, this lovely set of Alice faux postage and The Mouse's Tail.
Here are close ups of the postage stamped on the Tim Holtz Ideaology Vintage Shabby paper Stack and stamped with Distress Inks in Vintage Velvet, Broken China and Pumice Stone.
The edge is a MS punch and I've decorated the back as well. As always, all entries that meet the challenge theme are accepted but Wonderland entries are encouraged (they get two chances instead of one in the prize drawing). Friday, June 22 is the last day to enter this month's challenge.
