Oh Alice!

A new challenge blog has just started - devoted to Alice in Wonderland - Oh Alice!

The first challenge is Chapter one: down the rabbit hole: the beginning ...
'Alice gets glam inspiration challenge' - In anticipation of the upcoming Tim Burton remake, let's GET GLAM with Alice! Jessica recently scored this UBER fab makeup palette by Urban Decay (thanks honey!) and fell in love with the awesome colors, the NAMES of the eyeshadows (all after Alice, of course ;) and the pop-up mushroom mirror!

'We wanna see how YOU get Glam using this amazing little piece as your inspiration! Show us your style, put on the glitz, and GET GLAM!'

I looked up the make up set on the internet and printed out the palette of colours. I then found a copyright-free picture of Alice to put in the middle. Having printed this out, I then used four favourite mini stamps with versamark and then embossed with gold detail (I wish it showed up better on the photo, but it's a dull day again, so had to resort to flash). The first three stamps on the top row are Magenta and the righthand corner one is Stampendous 'african flower'.

It so happens that the new challenge launched today on Wednesday stamper is 'Alice in Wonderland' - what a happy coincidence! - so I'm linking for that.

It's another entry for Sophisticat 23: 'embossing'.

I really enjoyed this challenge (even though I had three attempts before I got it right - kept getting the wrong stamps in the wrong places).
