Chapter 46 Queen Alice

In Wonderland, Iracebeth is the Red Queen of Crims and Mirana is the White Queen. Iracebeth and Mirana are sisters who couldn't be more different: while the White Queen is kind and gentle and is loved by everyone, the Red Queen's answer to everything is "Off with their heads!"

To honor our Royal Highnesses, the challenge at Oh Alice is to choose which Royal Court you would want to have rule over you, the Red Queen's or the White Queen's???
So the challenge this week is to create a card/project that is either mostly white or mostly red.

Since I truly value my head, I obviously went with Mirana, the White Queen. I will admit that Iracebeth is much more colorful (and definitely easier to scan), Mirana certainly has a kind of beauty.

To create my card I dug into my white cardstock. The base card is cryogen. It has its own sparkle. The card panel uses paper from the Paper Temptress. I wish you could see the shimmer and elegance in this tuxedo striped paper. Next I cut the fancy Heartfelt Creation window and die cut a piece of two sided adhesive. I removed the backing paper and attached the window to the card. I removed the other paper leaving just the adhesive attached to the card. I covered the entire adhesive window diecut with white glass bead glitter. The Queen Alice image was painted using Creative Inspirations paints. The die cut scalloped oval was edged with silver paint. The sentiment was printed from the challenge with a Dymo writer.

In addition to Oh Alice Fabulous Friday challenged us this week to use paint in our creation.

I would pick the white queen too! She is a much nicer person! I love the die cut paper you used for the background of this beautiful card! Thanks for taking on our paint challenge at Frosted Designs this week!
