Falling leaves for Alice! second post today..

Well hey there bloggers,
Here's my offering today, a tag with falling leaves, which I have put Alice and the White rabbit floating in...hope that comes across..
The background has been made using DI...shock horror!!The right side of the background using my favourite technique...where the DI are applied to tag using blending tool and then spritzed with water.One dry I overstamped with who in the world am I and then I stamped the leaves in coffee archival..and yes they are meant to be falling down!!oops.

The left hand side has a panel which has been inked darker and script stamp stamped.To add depth I have then added tattered leaves die cuts colours in same way and stamped with text..hope the photo shows this up.
I stamped Alice and White rabbit in coffee archival and made leaves using clearly for art , which I coloured using alcohol inks!!I just love this stuff!! I attached these to the tag and then positioned Alice and the White rabbit so that they ...hopefully!!!!...look like they are floating to the ground in the leaves?!!!

To finish I added curiouser and curiouser on DI background and a small metal watch charm.

The ribbon is vintage seam binding coloured with DI and spritzed and scrunched!!
