Oh Alice! Ch.34 A Mad Tea Party

`And ever since that,' the Hatter went on in a mournful tone, `he won't do a thing I ask! It's always six o'clock now.'
A bright idea came into Alice's head. `Is that the reason so many tea-things are put out here?' she asked.
`Yes, that's it,' said the Hatter with a sigh: `it's always tea-time, and we've no time to wash the things between whiles.'
`Then you keep moving round, I suppose?' said Alice.
`Exactly so,' said the Hatter: `as the things get used up.'
`But what happens when you come to the beginning again?' Alice ventured to ask.

~Chapter 7, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

This week's challenge at Oh Alice! is to use a tea bag fold on your project.
Now, I know what "tea bagging" is, but had to refer to YouTube for help with this one! .
I found some great tutorials on traditional tea bag folding,
but when I ran across this altered tea bag scallop flower,
I decided to go WAY outside of my box and give it a go. 

I found this amazing art online by googling "zombie".

Although she doesn't appear to be infected,
she is gorgeous and possibly deadly anyway.
I colored her with Copics and returned to my purple addiction,
coupled with my penchant for fluorescent green. 

This fleur was created with a SU scallop punch.
It was pretty simple, but I can see where practice could be
helpful.
I can't say I will be making these fleurs like a mad woman in
the future, but I did reconnect with the notion of what a challenge really means.

Feel free to stop by the Oh Alice! blog to check out 
how the other ladies rose to this challenge.
