Queen of Hearts Deck of cards Case

 Where do all the Queen of Hearts Red knights go when not on duty?  Simple, into her Deck holder. 
I love Alice in Wonderland and right now so does Alpha Stamps!  There kit this month is Alice in a Tin. I've done Alice tins before but I think this one is my favorite, because it is functional. 
All the supplies I used can be found HERE.
Of course the Queen of Heart starts her day by ordering the White Rabbit to call all her Red Knights to duty. 
 She spies white flowers among her prized red roses on the trellis by her bedroom window which  incenses her. 
 Of course her run in with a girl named Alice is still fresh on her mind making her burn with fury deep inside her evil gut. 
 After all Alice helped her idiotic Red Knights paint the white roses red.  What kind of nincompoop aids in such a vile act?
 They must be punished and put away.
 Inside two altoid tin bottoms hinged together using the Altoids Tin Book Covers with a minor alteration to the spine to make it wider is where the Red Knights will be kept. 
 A mini collage of all things Queen of Hearts fills one tin.  Looked over by miniature playing cards.
The Red Knights tuck themselves away in their red velvet bed until the Queen of Hearts calls on them again tomorrow.

She could not be caged

 I've been wanting to try my hand at some canvas work since visiting an antique store and felling in love with a collaged cow.  So, when Alpha Stamps Birds and Cages kit arrived I knew exactly what I was going to do.
The cages that no longer hold my bird are the 2", 3" and 4" die cut chipboard.  They come with backs, so I've squirreled those away to use another day. Just did a coat of brown paint and then dry brushed on some lighter brown, tan and white to give them more depth.
 For the bird I drew out a shape and then decoupaged over it using the Serendipity Glee Scrapbook paper.  The eye is an Antique Brass birdhouse charm.
The lovely lady is from the My Graceful Figure Collage Sheet.  One of my favorite things about this piece is the bright shinny gold leaf that I put here and there around the edge.  I just love how it contrasts with the blues and pinks. 
I think for a first go this one's not bad.  Now I just need to start making them bigger and bigger.  The cow was 40" x 40"!
Thanks for stopping by!
