Alice said: "I'm tired of being only 3 inches high"

March 8th 2012


A fun challenge at The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge Blog - "Mushrooms"!!! I've made this fun gate fold card with a quote from Alice in Wonderland and great Alice & mushroom images from Lily's range of quirky designs!!


To make this card I used watercolour paints (some very cheap kids paints!!!) and painted both sides of the card all over then put both sides through the printer to print the mushrooms on the card. Then I "coloured" the mushrooms "messily" LOL with paints. I printed Alice on white paper, coloured her and fussy cut her out then stuck her to the inside of the card. I quite like the effect!!

Oh this is too cool - I LOVE the effect, just gorgeous. I wanted to play along this week but I didn't have anything from TOF with mushrooms on it and I just can't buy anything else right now (I kind of splurged last week!). LOL This is perfect for the challenge!

The gatefold style works so well with those images and adds even more whimsy.
