card for 2 challenges

This card is for 2 challenges this week, the first one being for Oh Alice!
The challenge this week is to create a card using some form of TEXT/Printed DP, Old Book pages, Newspaper print, Old dictionary, etc. We just need to see SOME form of printed text on your card or project!


And the second challenge is Passion for ProMarkers and has been set by Gina and here is what she says:
She would like you to ‘use 2 images on your project’ – you could stamp two separate images, or use a focal image and background stamp or even merge two digi images – it’s entirely up to you. You can use any colour promarkers to colour your images but your must follow the theme to be eligible for the prize draw.
This challenge is being sponsored by Letraset and the lucky winner will receive a 5 pack of promarkers.

So here is the card I've entered:
It's like 2 cards in one! You could have the White Rabbit showing or you could fold it the other way and have Alice showing. I'm giving it to my Aunt who's birthday it is on Monday. Hope she likes it!
The text on the Rabbit part is from the Alice in Wonderland book, which has been released in conjunction with the film, starring the most wonderful, gorgeous, sexy Mr Johnny Depp (which I have now seen twice and can feel another cinema trip coming on)! And of course you all know how obsessed I am with JD. If not have a look at the bottom of my blog for some eye candy!! lol
Anyway I digress (why does JD always do that to me?), back to the card. I coloured the rabbit with 3 different greys starting by colouring it all in in the lightest grey, then using one shade darker have gone over it again but not going to the middle of the image. And finally with a shade darker again and I have gone around the inside edge of the image. And for the hearts I used 2 shades of red, Lipstick and Red.
On the inside of the card Alice is coloured with Cyan and Aegean for shading. And I've used a Martha Stewart border punch and layered it up. All the card is DCWV and the messages are computer generated.

Monochromatic milk cartons

I thought I'd have another go at a milk carton this week and then thought I'd do a holder for a set of them and a matching card.

This is what I came up with:
The stamps were a magazine freebie and the papers are DCWV

Oh Alice chapter 5 challenge

The challenge at Oh Alice! this week is to use a caterpillar or butterfly on your project.
I was looking for something different to do for Daisy's birthday this year and love those little drawers and easel cards so thought I`d put both together and see what I could come up with and this is the result.
The image is "Daisy" from Sugar Nellie and is coloured with ProMarkers. The papers are Papermania. The butterfly on the card is an Anita's dimensional sticker and the other butterflies are a stamp from Joanna Sheen. I've used a Martha Stewart punch on the card and all the distressing is done with a Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy ink pad
