Another Alice Inspired Piece

An Alice in Wonderland lovin’ friend has a birthday coming up. I went to look for some movie inspiration and found this piece and set off to create.

I brayered the sky (Bashful Blue then Bordering Blue) and the grassy area (Old Olive then Always Artichoke). I wanted to emulate the swirls in the inspiration piece so I stamped out a couple of Sizzix Scribbles and Swirls but it just looked to harsh so I pulled the scrap of paper I had punched out of and used it as a stencil and sponged in the swirls varying how dark they were for depth. I cut the oval out of the center. The images were colored with Copics (I was going to list them per a request I received but it was over 35!!! So maybe another time.) and cut them out. The flowers were touched up with Copic airbrushing to make them match this scene. Their centers are from a 1/4" circle punch and the Scribbles and Swirls die. Hmmm, have I ever used flowers before???
