S2GSC47 Cheshire Cat page for Paper Bag Album






















S2G (Shirley's 2 Girls) Twisted Thursday Cheshire challenge provided me with my very own free DIGI of their new CHESHIRE CAT.  The challenge this week is an 'optional sketch for me to use and their TWIST...which is to use STRIPES....and guess what the CHESHIRE CAT already has STRIPES built in! As they said, no excuse not to enter. To follow the sketch, the green horizontal stripe actually is my Maya Road twig colored purple and entwined with leaf trim (which really isn't horizontal).  Or you can say it's the lace and flower trim along the bottom.









The Alice image is cut from free artist paper (One & One created by Chrysti Hydeck for Stampinton & Company) in the March/April 2010 Somerset Studio magazine. Since I cut out the digi image, I replaced the swirls with EK Success Dainty Black Flourishes. Background paper is Karen Foster purple houndstooth. Various shades of purple ink for distressing.  Various Copic markers.
