Final Week-Changes in Form or Dress Form

"Alice crouched down among the trees as well as she could, for her neck kept getting entangled among the branches, and every now and then she had to stop and untwist it. After a while she remembered that she still held the pieces of mushroom in her hands, and she set to work very carefully, nibbling first at one and then at the other, and growing sometimes taller and sometimes shorter, until she had succeeded in bringing herself down to her usual height.
It was so long since she had been anything near the right size, that it felt quite strange at first; but she got used to it in a few minutes, and began talking to herself, as usual. `Come, there's half my plan done now! How puzzling all these changes are! I'm never sure what I'm going to be, from one minute to another!"

-- Chapter 5, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Well, just like Alice we have been through a change in location and changed form from weekly to monthly, but the challenge chapters remain familiar despite all these puzzling changes!

This is the last Sunday.......So the Winner will be announced at the Altered Alice blog.

Is it you......did you enter?

And now for the big news - STAMPOTIQUE ORIGINALS is sponsoring our first challenge with a $30 gift certificate for one lucky winner, and their design team is going to play along! Be sure to visit their Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog where you can play every week! They are famous for artist Daniel Torrente's quirky characters, but they actually have many artists and quite a few different styles. Jo Capper-Sandon is my favorite with her wonderful mushrooms, and other lines include Janet Klein's flower characters (click next a few times to see them) that remind me of the garden of living flowers! There is something to please everyone at Stampotique Originals!

Here is my inspiration for you:

I took Moth Fab (love her! she is fab!) I put her on a lamp post base. Her legs and feet gone. She has turned into her own dress form. I think she turned out marvelous on her post.

I used 7 Gypsies paper and the lamp post is also from 7 Gypsies. Photo corners, tim holtlz alteration die, some bead ribbon, flower from Recollection and a little piece of leftover trim. Of course you need the Moth Fab Stamp from Stampotique Originals in order to duplicate this baby. You will be in love!

                                                        I though this would be a fun picture.
                                                                     Just another look
                                                                        A little closer
Now go to the Altered Alice blog and see this month's winner.....Is it you?

I LOVE Moth Fab as her own dress form! You are SO CREATIVE with these stamps, I am really impressed! Love the warm rich reds and ambers, and the black adds a lot of drama while really grounding the piece! Wonderful card!
