Oh, Alice - CHAPTER 3: Painting the Roses Red...

Good Morning, well I thought I would take part in the fabulous colour inspiration challenge over at Oh, Alice...

 

CHAPTER 3: Painting the Roses Red
"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"...

Painting the Roses RED...and blue...and purple.... the colours in the inspiration picture. I have used Dawns  fab sketch from ICS as the base of my card. I've tried to keep it clean and simple :) Still loving the creepy cakes LOL! I thought I would use every red marker in my collection for her hair, mad hey? A few fiddly bits to cut out though! I also had a go at my own pearly swirl thank you to Elaine from Quixotic for the flat backed pearls in my prize goodies :)
 

Supplies: Patterned Paper: BasicGrey: Sugar rush;
Stamps: TGF: Creepy Cakes; Amelia & Oliver sentiment;
Ink: Printer; archival: black; Copic: markers*;
Dies: Cuttlebug: embossing folder; MS: border punch;
Other: Prima paper roses; flat backed pearls; 3D foam;



*Skin: E000, 21,13 & RV10, Hair: R14, 24, 29, 37, 39, 46, 59,  Outfit: E50, 53, B93, 95, 97, FV2 and I use my colourless Blender throughout.

Thank you for stopping by, BiG HuGs Kim :)
