CHAPTER 21: Breaking ALL the Rules...

{{{***please SCROLL DOWN for my UNITY Stamp Co. Store Kit post!  Thank you SO much!***}}}

Chapter 21:  Breaking all the Rules

"At this moment the King, who had been for some time busily writing in his note-book, cackled out `Silence!' and read out from his book, `Rule Forty-two. ALL PERSONS MORE THAN A MILE HIGH TO LEAVE THE COURT.'
Everybody looked at Alice.
`I'M not a mile high,' said Alice.
`You are,' said the King.
`Nearly two miles high,' added the Queen.
`Well, I shan't go, at any rate,' said Alice: `besides, that's not a regular rule: you invented it just now.'
`It's the oldest rule in the book,' said the King.
`Then it ought to be Number One,' said Alice. "

Hello everyone!
Today we have a fun and rather rebellious challenge for all of you out there in WONDERLAND! We start out with a lovely sketch by Sammi for Oh, Alice:OAC21SammiSketch
The catch? You must RE-CREATE this sketch somehow. Switch out a panel or two, flip on its side, upside down, etc. There are no rules except to break them, meaning you can't follow the sketch exactly! Makes no sense right? GOOD. :)
Today we also are thrilled to announce another wonderful sponsorship from SPESCH DESIGNER STAMPS! 
For my card today, I used the "Queen of Hearts" digital stamp.  I colored her w/ my Copics using pretty non-traditional colors but I loved this paper so much it worked out well ;)  I stitched around the two triangles of different DP and BROKE THE RULES by placing the three Webster's Pages "Bloomers" along the side of the image instead of on top.  I also left out the other layer next to the main image panel.  Whoa, rebel, slow down!  LOL!   I had fun and used StazOn for the sentiment so it would stay on the glittery DP :)

Thank you so much to Tracey Feeger for allowing the DT to work with your adorable images! Tracey is offering a prize of a VERY generous $10 Gift Certificate to the Spesch Designer Stamps Store! Be sure to check out all of her cute designs and be sure to play along this week for your chance to WIN!
Go ahead...BREAK all the KNOW you want to!

Lynne Phelps said...

When will I EVER learn to START with the designer paper???? I always start with the focal point image and then I am usually scrambling for something to put it on, LOL! Can you say "Do it the HARD way!" I think this must be why I almost never have DP on my cards. I really love your non-traditional colors and your Webster's Bloomers are fab! Lovely card for sure!!!

Lynne Phelps said...

Oh yeah - LOVE the blog makeover. "Yeah, she stamps" - what a GREAT title!
