Dum And Dee's Excellent Adventure

Wonderland's all very well and good, but we all need a change from time to time, so Alice and Co have had a day out in Old London Town (cue Phantom Raspberry Blower - you had to be there lol)
The monthly challenge at The Altered Alice is 'Going Postal', so I've made a postcard to commemorate their visit.
My card has been Pan Pastel'd in blues, magenta - lurve this shade, and greens. The stamps are a mixture of Clarity (that's the ATC sized postage stamp top right), Tim Holtz (postcard) Cherry Pie (all of the Alice stamps) Kanban (London and the cancellation stamp). The main image stamps are Creative Journey and Artistic Outpost.
You can imagine the state of my craft room with this load of stamps out, and the bin in overflowing... I wanted to do this on glossy card with a brayered background, but after getting smudgy fingerprints on 5 or 6 I gave up and reached for the Pans. I love the crisp image Versafine gives, but I always smudge.
Check out the amazing artwork at The Altered Alice, and thanks very much for looking x
