OH, ALICE!!!!!

CHAPTER ONE: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE: THE BEGINNING...
"The White Rabbit put on his spectacles. "Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?" he asked.
"Begin at the beginning," the King said gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop."

...... It's finally here!!! Yay!! The very first Oh, Alice challenge!! WHOO - How exciting! Below is the challenge Jessica issued and my card!

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 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!

And WHAT would our first Challenge be without a PRIZE?! Now, normally we'll be (hopefully) sponsored on the 1st Sat. of each month, but for today's FIRST Fall Down the Rabbit Hole, we thought we'd give away a little something! ONE LUCKY WINNER will be chosen at Random to WIN a stamp single of their choice from THE GREETING FARM (in stock items only). So, GOOD LUCK and here's how to play:

You have until FRIDAY, February 26, 2010 at 10pm CST to upload your card or project using the inspiration photo as your muse! Upload to your blog or public gallery (please use keyword OAC1) and LINK your name on the Oh, Alice challenge blog We can't WAIT to see your creations and THANK YOU for your support of this CURIOUS new venture!

and now for my card.....

Some explanation of this curious card..... I decided to make an easel card.... as the makeup kit was screaming that out to me.... I was also inspired by the colours and the picture around the mirror! I drew up some mushrooms that looked similar and then coloured them (and Alice) in with my Copics ... I decided to papertole the mushrooms (using foam tape) to add a bit more of a 3-d effect! and as for glamour and glitz... I added some bling and stickles to make things a bit more sparkly!!

Here is a closer pic from a different angle so you can see the easel card and the papertoling!Make sure you go and visit all the other DT (links in my sidebar and on the Oh, Alice challenge site) Really Looking forward to seeing you down the rabbit hole and looking at all your wonderful creations !!! OH and..... Jimmy is having a little blog candy giveaway - open to all who enter this challenge to ... so pop on over to Jimmi's blog and find out more :D
