For a moment lay aside
Cunning tricks and elfish play,
'Tis at happy Christmas-tide.
Gentle children. whom we love—
Long ago, on Christmas Day,
Came a message from above.
They remember it again—
Echo still the joyful sound
"Peace on earth, good-will to men!"
Where such heavenly guests abide;
Unto children, in their glee,
All the year is Christmas-tide!
For a moment, Lady dear,
We would wish you, if we may,
Merry Christmas, glad New Year!
Welcome down the rabbit hole once again my friends! DT sister Erin found this poem by Lewis Carroll in the back of a copy of Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. In researching the history of this poem, Erin found the The Lewis Carroll Memorial Window at Daniell Chapel in England.
Oh, Alice! challenge this week let's get into the Christmas spirit. The challenge is to use red, green, + one color. You can still use other colors for hair and skin. Just make the main use of color red, green, + one.
Our wonderful sponsor this week is Pixie Dust Studio. The lucky winner will win their choice of 2 digital images.
My "Touch of Depp" Card
I am using one of the charming Pixie Dust Studio Wonderland images called "A Touch of Depp" and it is so much fun to color - and how can you go wrong with a Johnny Depp inspired image! I printed this Mad Hatter image with a black and white laser onto color laser printer paper and colored with Copic markers. I tried to match the look of Johnny Depp in the Alice in Wonderland movie, but shifted his outfit into various colors of rich reds and greens in keeping with today's challenge. I also made the sentiments and banners on my computer and printed and colored them the same way. I covered the back of all my colored images with glue stick and adhered them to cheap white card stock and trimmed them out.
Finishing touches included rimming all the edges with a Krylon Pale Gold Leafing Pen, and a double-looped bow of soft sage green satin ribbon made on my Bow-Easy.
Now let's see what the rest of my design team sisters have created for you this week!
