Unusual Alice Challenge

I have been having fun playing along with the challenges on the Poisoned Peas blog. They do make me think and go outside of what I normally make. The current challenge is to make a project with an "Unusual Alice". Well that sent me on a search because I don't have any Alice in Wonderland images and I found a shop on Etsy that had some awesome images, including an Alice inspired set! The name of the shop is The Octopode Factory. For my card, I painted a piece of white card stock using blue, black and white paints. After getting all of my color laid down, I went through the wet paint with a paintbrush to make the swirl design. I couldn't really think of embellishments to use so I just added some square rhinestones on the outer circle. Images are colored with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by!
