OH Alice... CHAPTER 7: We're ALL M.A.D Here...

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here..."

Down the rabbit hole at Oh, Alice! this week we are M.A.D with THE GREETING FARM!! The sweet and generous Marie has generously offered her new line of Alice-inspired stamps, The Creepy Cakes to the DT and a FABULOUS prize of THREE FREE Creepy Cakes Digital Images OR ONE Rubber Single to ONE LUCKY WINNER! Thanks Marie!

the Twisted sisters have some wonderfully M.A.D (Monochromatic and Distressed!) examples using the CREEPY CAKES digital images and we're M.A.D about them! In fact, we liked them SO much that we hope you'll get M.A.D. with us, too! Check them all out HERE!!

We're also MAD about our APRIL TEA PARTY GUEST! Please join us in welcoming Kim Howard, a.k.a. BASEMENT STAMPER to our Twisted Tea party this month! She's been curiouser and curiouser to get started and we're happy to have her at our twisted little table :)

so... here is my M.A.D card... I have used Freaky Flutter and decided to go completely Monochrome with just B&W + shades of grey! I think it's a bit dark and doesn't stand out as much as I would like... But it was pretty fun! :D

The music note paper is new digi paper that I got from Bizzy Becs digi store ... isn't it gorgeous!!
I printed it on our black and white printer instead of colour though...

The distressing I have done with scissors, an emery board and sponging ink on...Creepy cake girl is coloured with cool Greys... C1, 3, 5, 7, 10, 0 and a white gel pen for highlights.

I ALMOST just did an ATC as I thought the image stood out quite well like this!! Perhaps that will HAVE to be a challenge for myself for another day!! :D

Pop on over to Oh, Alice to see the wonderfully M.A.D creations from the DT AND to submit your OWN M.A.D. creation: Monochromatic and Distressed! Make sure you get it in on time for your chance to win these gorgeous creepy cakes... DON'T BE LATE!! Enjoy getting M.A.D!!

...."No wonder you're late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow"....
Just remember my aussie friends that your watches do need changing tonight... but only back an hour for the end of daylight savings!! :D
