Oh Alice Challenge Chapter 25

White Rabbit, White Gloves, White Wonderland. That is what the challenge is over at Oh Alice! this week. To create an all white card with the exception of your main image, everything including embellishments had to be white. I loved this challenge. I have been following the blog for a while but never did one of the challenges but this week was my week to complete it. As you can see by my card everything is white except for my main image which is Alice and the Red Queen. Your card does not have to include something from Alice in Wonderland but I wanted to and found some great vintagy type images so I used my Derwent watercolour pencils and an aqua brush to colour the image in. The ribbon, braiding and lace are from my stash. The white flowers are Prima E Line. I used the Swiss Dot and Victorian embossing folders. Now the card itself I cut on my Cricut machine from the Sentimentals cartridge which has some awesome card shapes and matching envelopes, I just love them. The cardstock and stamp pad are from SU of course hehe. The pearl brad in the centre of the flowers are from my cheap shop in town where you get 16 pearl brads for two dollars!!!! I bought 3 packs and I will go back for more lol it is a great bargain.


Okay I had better get back to my studying as I have an assignment due this Friday.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with absolute beauty.

Oh this turned out fabulous and although I wouldn't know what to do with that shape you proved to me it is possible.

I love it that you used one of the original Tenniel illustrations, Alice with the Red Queen! The Tenniel illustrations remain my favorites and I use them as often as I can! Bravo on the coloring and your white background and embellishments are WONDERful! Thanks so much for playing along with Oh, Alice!
