12 Layouts of Alice - Layout #7

Hello and good afternoon! Here I am again to share my number seven layout for my 12 Layouts of Alice. This layout included creating and using my own mask, lots of inking, and embossing. That gold embossing powder from Ranger is awesome! I love how when you heat the powder it turns to liquid gold! So beautiful! I will be using this product more often, for sure. Enjoy!

Here is Tim's tag for day #7. If you would like more information on Tim's products, techniques, or 12 Tags of Christmas visit his website at

Curioser and Curioser layout. There was a lot of stamping and inking in this layout but it was worth it. When I finished the background paper my oldest daughter, Janie, asked me where I bought the paper. I told her I made it and she was amazed. I thought the masking technique was going to be more diffiicult than it really was. I strongly suggest people try this! It is so much fun!

The mask makes it easy to give relief in the inking and leaves such a nice imprint of the stamp underneath. I added cut out butterflies that I printed from my computer and, of course, the gold embossing of the title. I also covered the frame for the photo in gold embossing powder as well.

Here you can see the stamping I did with one of Tim's mini script stamps, the larger of the butterflies, and half a t-shirt transfer clock I bought on sale!

This is a close-up of the top right corner. You can see the stamping with the paint dabber here and the journaling I did on a diecut butterfly.
