Alice in Outlines

Here is a scan of a work in progress (you can click to make it larger, if you like). I took a favorite illustration from Alice in Wonderland and attempted to turn it into a silhouette/paper cut as best I could.

This is only my third attempt at scherenschnitte, so I'm pretty happy with the results, although I wasn't quite sure what to do with her eyes. I may just keep cutting away.

That is GREAT!
I adore scherenschnitte (see? I can even spell it!) I have a few examples on my blog (mostly other artists).
Keep up the great work!

Tina, it took me a few hours. Having a good xacto knife really helps.
