Oh Alice ... CHAPTER 35: CHESS - CHESSBOARD - CHESSMEN

"They don't keep this room so tidy as the other,' Alice thought to herself, as she noticed several of the chessmen down in the hearth among the cinders: but in another moment, with a little `Oh!' of surprise, she was down on her hands and knees watching them. The chessmen were walking about, two and two!

`Here are the Red King and the Red Queen,' Alice said (in a whisper, for fear of frightening them), `and there are the White King and the White Queen sitting on the edge of the shovel -- and here are two castles walking arm in arm..."

--Ch. 1: Through the Looking Glass

The challenge this week is again the brainchild of DT member Lynne-to use some aspect of the game of chess! You might want to use a checkerboard pattern, or feature a King, Queen, Knight or Castle (Rook), or some other aspect of the game we haven't thought of - we just need to be able to clearly see CHESS in your creation!

We are THRILLED to announce that there's a prize this week, too! Thanks to our generous sponsor, PAPER MANIAC, this week, they are giving away a set of Artistic Outpost Alice in Wonderland mini-stamps AND a sheet of E.A.D. Designs Stickerz! How awesome is that?


Here's my inspiration for this week ...

The checkerboard floor comes from Fune-stock over on Deviant Art... isn't it AWESOME! THANKS Trace for telling me to use it!! :D
The Alice image is one that I drew up... having looked at lots of different Alice images on the web I took inspiration from a number of them and drew up this little cutie! I hope you like her!

POP on over to Oh, Alice to see all the rest of the amazing DT creations!!

Checkmate! Have YOU met your match? You have until FRIDAY, October 29th to enter your creation and throw your hat (or should I say, crown?) in the ring for this awesome PAPER MANIAC prize this week! The winner will be announced with the next challenge!!
See you soon!

  9. The checkered floor is perfect to showcase your oh so charming hand drawn Alice!!! The coloring is GORGEOUS! The queen and rabbit playing cards also reinforce the game playing theme, and I love the way you cut your sentiment apart, it adds a lot of energy to the design!
