In My Garden - Wednesday Stamper

This card is for this week's challange on Wednesday Stamper. It was "In my garden". In my garden you can find Priscilla the cat, eyeing Alistair the owl. I call it "Desire" haha!

As is often the case with challanges this lead me to make another card featuring some of the same images.
You may or may not know, but I am a HUGE Alice in Wonderland freak. Like crazy huge. If you read some of the text on this portion I cut out for my background you will see it is where Alice is falling down the rabbit hole and she wonders if she will come out where people
walk with thier heads downward". That got me thinking of the cat being upside down. Also that goofy Cheshire cat spends time upside down in trees, so I figure that works too.
This is the book I cut the text from. This book has a child's handwriting inside with thier name and the date, the date they claimed it was before I was born! I picked this up at the thrift store for 25 cents! I wanted a book to cut text out of for backgrounds like this and I figured with my love of Alice and the funny lines in the book it would be a great pick for me. *yes, as a fan I was tempted to keep the book, for my collection of Alice in Wonderland books, but it has some funky 70's style artwork and I'm very particlular about the artwork in my Alice books, I only like the Sir John Tenniel art*

all stamps are justjohanna. I colored the "desire" one with copic markers, after stamping with gray palette ink. the Alice in Wonderland one I colored with watercolor pencil and blended with a Dove blender pen.
