Alice in Wonderland ATC swap: Vicky Martindale, Michigan

This is Vicky Martindale's 7th swap here at creative swaps, and she also participated in many other swaps I hosted before I even started this blog : ) For our Alice in Wonderland swap, Vicky has sent in some lovely dimensional ATCs. Many feature playing cards that are cut out and not glued flat to her base, but are hovering above the surface via foam tape. It is a great effect!

For her ATCs, Vicky relied on the wonderful images from the Mad Hatter's Teaparty #1 available at Alpha Stamps, who is sponsoring this swap. A bit of trivia, Vicky sent me a note with her ATCs telling me she had visited the Detroit institute of Arts and saw a painting by my Great Uncle, William Glackens, "The Promenade" (1927). This is a painting of William's daughter, my namesake, Lenna Glackens! Thank you for sharing that, Vicky! I have a recent post about William Glackens on my creative lenna blog - if you'd like to learn more.
