Bloggers Challenge 172 with Oh Alice

It's Friday and time for Blogger's Challenge. This week we had a sketch to use. Again a sketch works well with a theme and OhAlice had the theme of nonsense--use Text in a nonsense way, not to read, but a pattern on our card (such as using a newspaper or dictionary page panel). As you can see from the image on the right, I did a quarter flip with the sketch. The background is a piece of cardstock from the Halloween Alice Graphics45 pad. I embossed the paper with an embossing folder and lightly sanded the embossing. The focal image is from the Artistic Outpost Wonderland Collage sheet and was colored with Copics. Behind the image is a panel from a dictionary page which was colored with Pan Pastels. The sentiment was stamped on ribbon. Of course, I had to add a clockface from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology line.

I love this card! Such a great take on the challenge - it has been so much fun to see what people do with this one! ;-)
I forget that you can emboss patterned paper. Such an interesting look, and I love the beautiful was of colors on the dictionary paper. Of course the main image is fab and the watch face is the perfect finishing touch!
