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 !!!
