Oh, Alice! Eat me....

For what now seems like many moons ago, I used to be a part
of a great group of creative ladies who were the design team
for the Oh, Alice! challenge blog. 
It was a wonderful Alice in Wonderland themed challenge blog.
After a while, the blog changed (equally worthy) hands,
and I felt it was a good time to step down and see what else was
out there for me creatively. I always meant to play along 
with the newly renamed, Altered Alice challenges, but never did.

Then I read that this is Altered Alice's last scheduled challenge until 
further notice. I absolutely had to play! 
It had been much too long since I made anything
Alice related, and I couldn't think of a better reason to do so.
And the theme is Anything Goes. Really? My favorite theme ever! 

I immediately knew I wanted to use my favorite Alice image, 
I had all the blue and yellow Copics out with the intention of doing 
a classic color scheme for Alice, but then I remembered 
it's anything goes!
I like Alice with lavender hair and green eyes.

Then, I colored up this great image drawn by Rick St. Dennis,
 and gussied it up a bit with some Stickles and loose Doodlebug glitter. 
I added the black satin ribbon with the buckle/brad to give some balance.
Plus, it was an opportunity to destash a bit. I always need to destash....  

I even broke out with my highly coveted 
Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland dp, and my 
loverly Leavenworth Jackson Wish you were here stamp. 
I embossed it after I distressed it slightly. 

I am so happy I got a chance to create something for the awesome
