Knock knock.........

who's there?
Alice................Alice who?............ALICE IN WONDERLAND OF COURSE!

On ALTERED ALICE today there is more inspiration for this months challenge from the design team and my piece is amongst them. The theme this month is DOORS and we are sponsored by THE OCTOPODE FACTORY.

I had to think for a while before I came up with an idea this month! In the end the old knock knock joke idea seeemed a fun one so I went with that!
I made this from a small canvas, used the hole in the back of the canvas to give a small niche. Cut a piece of card for the door and covered it with canvas to match.

In and around the niche I used digi images of Alice along with stamped flowers.....also from The Octopode factory........
......on the inside of the door I used stamped eat me cakes to make flowers.....the stems and leaves are hand drawn.........

on the front of the door is another Alice digi image sized to fit and a cut out and glued on large key hole......all the writing is hand done!!
