Oh Alice Chapter 6 and Blog Hop Winner!



TGIF! I finally finished this week's Oh Alice! challenge card and although it didn't turn out as I envisioned,I did manage to use the fine print as the challenge asks. I ended up finding the text from "Alice" on the internet and copied page 1 in a cool font on my computer. I printed it first on some of the Nusery Rhyme Paper from Prima which just so happens to have Alice images all over it. Then I printed it again on plain white.


The quote that caught my eye first was "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?" so I took out my Nesties Labels 7 and cut out the book and page and lined it up over the background so you could still read the fine print (after inking with TH Distress Inks). The placement of the quote dictated the layout (which is kind of weird but what can you do?) The little metal flower at the top is Tim Holtz Metal Foliage.


The page goes on about the White Rabbit and his watch so I found this classic image from The Graphics Fairy and colored it with my Copics. The watch face is also TH and I used his game spinners for hands. The left hand side looked a little bare so I twisted the bookmark to the side and attached it under the mat. If you look closely you can see Alice following the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole on the printed paper.


Thanks for hanging in there. Now for the big announcement. Drumroll please!..... the winner of $30 gift certificate to Custom Crops Chosen by a Random number generator (that I can't manage to copy and paste for the life of me ) is #105, (please note that comment #75 was deleted by the author so that made a total of 109 posts instead of 110.)
