'A large rose-tree stood near the entrance of the garden: the roses growing on it were white, but there were three gardeners at it, busily painting them red. Alice thought this a very curious thing, and she went nearer to watch them, and just as she came up to them she heard one of them say, `Look out now, Five! Don't go splashing paint over me like that!'
-- Chapter 8, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
The cards were painting the white roses red to avoid angering the Queen of Hearts, so your challenge is to use PAINT on your creation! Of course you can paint it RED like the design team will be doing, but you can also use other colors.

They also carry hot fix Jeweled Inspirations and Metallic Inspirations; I am particularly intrigued by the latter as they look like brilliant nail heads. The Altered Alice design team will be using Garnet paint, a bright sparkling red, and I hope the Creative Inspirations design team might decide to play along! The winner of this month's challenge will receive five colors of their choice.

hellokids. It's an image from the Disney movie. I had bookmarked the site for my grandson, since there were a lot of Alice in Wonderland pages. However, this page was so perfect for this challenge. I printed the page on sticky back canvas. I used Creative Inspirations to paint the image (except the sky which I did with Pan Pastels. Canvas is not a requirement to use these paints, it was just something I wanted to try. The roses are white ribbon roses which I painted with the red (garnet) paint. The roses along the side are from Tim Holtz's rose ribbon. These were dyed with fired brick distress stain. Alice was cut from another of the Disney pages. She was colored with Copics. The frame is a shadowbox with the glass removed (violently). I used white and black gesso to distress the wood. the sentiment was computer generated and adhered to the pennant die cut.
Challenge. Do visit the blog. I think you'll be inspired.
