Chapter 46: Queen Alice

"Hush-a-by lady, in Alice's lap!
Till the feast's ready, we've time for a nap.

When the feast's over, we'll go to the ball -

Red Queen, and White Queen, and Alice, and all!"

~ "Queen Alice", Through The Looking-Glass

We here at Oh Alice, hereby cordially invite you to meet Iracebeth the Red Queen of Crims and Mirana 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 Highness's, we challenge you 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, if you should choose to accept it, is to create a card/project that is either mostly white or mostly red.

This week's Oh, Alice challenge is being sponsored by Baby Bud Designs!

"The Baby Bud illustrations you see in the shop have been drawn ‘free hand’ by the artist and owner, Mary Anne Wainright. There is never any computer re-imaging involved. Their quirky little imperfections are what make them original, unique and whimsical and reminds the viewer that they were created from the heart."

Baby Bud Designs has not only generously let the DT use her images, but is also offering the winner a choice of TWO digital images from their Baby Bud Designs Etsy Shop!

Here is my choice: Meet Chloe

I used October Afternoon paper, layered Chloe's dress and colored the rest of Chloe. Added a tattered flower I made of scraps of paper and felt, glued a flower button on. Then a little sewing on the card to finish it off. Hope you enjoyed my take on Chloe.

You have until Friday, January 21st, 8pm CST to submit your creations on Oh Alice. We look forward to seeing which Queen will win!

She is perfectly and simply red for the Queen's court. I love your sentiment, it couldn't be more adorable. The paper used for her crinolin is the best clever. Awesome card!
