We’re Painting the Roses Red

It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for a little Oh, Alice! This week our dear Mad Hatter, Jess, has given us a fantastic challenge and I am SOOO excited about my card. I really pushed myself on this one and I LOVE it. 😀

So here is the challenge…

“Would you tell me please,” said Alice a little timidly, “Why are you painting those roses?”
Five and Seven said nothing, but looked at Two.  Two began in a low voice, “Why the fact is, you see, Miss, this here ought to have been a Red rose tree, and we put a white one in by mistake”…

Welcome back!  We’re painting the Roses RED…and blue…and purple….and hey, we’re painting our NAILS too!   Check out this AWESOMELY ALICE inspiration picture featuring this SUPER cool new O.P.I. Polish collection, “Wonderland”.

We also had the wonderful opportunity to work with the new line from Kraftin’ Kimmie and oh, my are they AWESOME! I chose Giselle to work with and she was a ton of fun to color. I colored her in traditional Alice colors with a pink twist. (p.s. my photo stink, my slr’s battery was dead so I had to use the little one. I’m going to take new ones tomorrow when the battery is back to life. Now UPDATED!!! And much better color, lol. :D)


I colored her with Prismas and OMS. I used a variety of papers, the purple dp is BoBunny and the pink polka dots are from My Mind’s Eye Abbey Road, and the butterflies and leaves are some designer paper Jess sent me with some Ippity stamps I ordered from her. 😀 The rest is Bazzill cardstock.

I embellished the heck out of this with paper flowers (again from Jess), Sassy Studio Designs mushrooms, ribbon (from Jess), MS tripple butterfly punch and branch punch and a bit of sparkle from a Sakura Stardust pen.

Here are some close ups!
