Secret Door to Wonderland: ATC 5

This is my favorite of the ATCs I created for the Secret Door ATC Swap at Artella. I LOVE Alice in Wonderland and have found some great little art goodies with that theme. These were little mini playing cards of different Alice in Wonderland characters that I hid behind the three doors shown on the first photo.

The second photo opens the first door. Behind it lies the The Herald. His door reads: Believe. The third photo opens the next door. Behind it sits the Hatter. His door says, "Twinkle, Twinkle says the Hatter." You can't have an Alice in Wonderland theme without the Hatter! And, of course, behind the final door is Alice herself! What else would her door say but "Adventure"!

I liked the contrast between the rusted out old doors and the fantasy of Wonderland that is hiding behind each one. The back cover is a digital stamp of different characters from the story blended into one.

These are the cards that I've posted over the last five days are what I've submitted to the swap. I can't wait to see what different artists' interpretations of Secret Door I get back! When they arrive in the mail, I will post them.

Still searching and printing out images for my zine swap. Had a short detour last night. Hubby and I decided to landscape a neglected corner of our home. I'll post pictures as soon as we put on the finishing touches. Teaser: I now have a real-life fairy garden! Stay tuned...

Morning Isabella,
I'm on a mission today to say, "hi and thank you".
Your ATCs are grand. They make me want to make some.
