Chapter 13: Mushroom Inspiration

Oh dear! I'd nearly forgotten that I've got to grow up again! Let me see--how IS it to be managed? I suppose I ought to eat or drink something or other; but the great question is, what?

Alice looked all round her at the flowers and the blades of grass, but she did not see anything that looked like the right thing to eat or drink under the circumstances. There was a large mushroom growing near her, about the same height as herself; and when she had looked under it, and on both sides of it, and behind it, it occurred to her that she might as well look and see what was on the top of it..."

Yay! It's the weekend! Today at Oh Alice we have a fabulous inspiration piece for you and are SO excited to get to this week's challenge. Here is your inspiration photo for this week's challenge:

We can't WAIT to see what you do with this week's challenge, and are even more excited to announce that this week, Oh, Alice is being sponsored by the wonderful Victoria Case Art Designs!! How awesome is THAT? And just WAIT until you check out the Prize! Victoria is SUPER generous and is offering 5 SINGLE Rubber Stamps to one lucky winner! Can you believe that?!? Thanks so much, Victoria!

For my card I used Sassy Alice and colored her with copics. I tried to pull a lot of the colors out of the inspiration picture. I think I missed light purple. I also tried a little something different with Alice's hair. When I was in my dentist office a few weeks ago I noticed that one of the receptionists had blonde hair on top with black hair on the underneath. It looked pretty cool. Not a look I could pull off, but I made note to try it out on some images. Well this image just called for the two-tone look. I think it adds to the Sassy. What do you think, thumbs up or down? I used Basic Grey DP and it doesn't show up on the camera but the flowers have Twilight glimmer mist on them and the white trim on her dress has glitter spica on them.

You have until Friday, May 20th at 8pm CST to enter to qualify for this awesome prize!

The hair looks great and the funky paper was a great choice for a 'shroom inspired card. This is a smokin' card - in more ways than one.
