CHAPTER 25: White Rabbit, White Gloves, White Wonderland...

 
 
CHAPTER 25: White Rabbit, White Gloves, White Wonderland...


"After a time she heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming. 


It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, `Oh! the Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! won't she be savage if I've kept her waiting!' 


Alice felt so desperate that she was ready to ask help of any one; so, when the Rabbit came near her, she began, in a low, timid voice, `If you please, sir--' The Rabbit started violently, dropped the white kid gloves and the fan, and skurried away into the darkness as hard as he could go..."


~Alices Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 2


Hello dolls!


We are back in the WHITE heat of August with another fabulous challenge for you today!   This week at Oh, Alice we are trying to BEAT that heat, and you know, they say you shouldn't wear dark colors this time of year to keep cool!


In the spirit of that, along with our WHITE Rabbit and his WHITE kid gloves, guess what our challenge is for you today?  


That's RIGHT.  WHITE WONDERLAND.   And we're not talkin' about Christmas! Your mission today, should you choose to accept it is to create (WITH the exception of your main image panel) an ALL WHITE card or project!


We have some fun news today and before we go I'd like to thank EMMA EADS for being our July Guest Tea Party member.  You did an WONDERFUL job, girlie and we are gonna miss you here on the team!  Since it's the beginning of the month, we are also excited, as it's time to welcome STEPHANIE JONES as our August Guest!   Stephanie is SUPER excited to be a guest at our twisted table and we are so happy to have her! 

We are also THRILLED to announce a standing sponsorship today with Tickled Pink Stamps!  Kellie has offered Oh, Alice a generous monthly sponsorship and we are thrilled to be able to give away such wonderful images to our awesome fans and players!  I chose to use 20's Evie which is on sale right now over at Tickled Pink Stamps.   


Tickled Pink Stamps is offering 1 RUBBER LOLITA of choice to one lucky winner this week!   Here's some inspiration:

Well, it's time to STOP treating these challenges with kid gloves and get crackin!   You have until Friday, August 13th (our FAVORITE number!) at 8pm CST to enter your creation using InLinkz here...Good luck!
 
I also used our blogger's challenge sketch that Lisa created this week & combined it with the Play Date Cafe challenge to use the following colors:

Verrrrrry interesting challenge. This might be the one to play on my subconscious as I'm plodding on and if I get a moment I'll join in if I can. I really enjoy seeing how the theme ideas come about (ie the white on white), its such an ingenious way of reaching a theme.

I love how the self colours look placed upon each other. A very effective way of working.
