Progressive Challenge, Part Two - October

Good morning fellow crafters, We all hope this post finds you all hale and hearty and ready for the next stage of our progressive challenge. This challenge started way back here in September with the Anything Goes part, and those that completed that part can apply to Mo for the image that has to be used in this second part. The image was originally destined to be in one of Rick St Dennis' colouring books but was substituted for another. Hence is being offered for sale in the Zibbet shop and those that were unlucky not to complete part one and want to join in this episode can buy Alice from here on zibbet and on etsy here

Talking about colouring books..... have you seen them yet? They are amazing!!
Great value for money, available from Amazon. There's the Day of the Dead, Rhinestones, Furs and Feathers and now The 150th Birthday Alice book. There's also a fabulous new book due out..........
and Rick is asking for you colourists to submit your coloured version to be used on the front cover. You get your name in print with full accreditation for the one chosen. Full details are here on this blog and in the facebook group. Good luck to all those that decide to take part.

Before I forget.....
Don't forget to check out our sister blog, Airless Chambers..... The month of October means only one thing............
31 days of Halloween has started!!! A project a day with a Halloween theme. Too good to miss!!

On with Team A's projects using Alice, isn't she just beautiful!!
Loving all the different versions

Mr Linky, as usual, can be found on the tab up top labelled Sept/Oct Progressive Challenge. So much easier to find that way.

Hi everyone for my inspiration post Im getting into the Christmas spirit with the adorable Rick St Dennis MFA digi stamp Chrismouse cute huh!!!!
To make my card I started off with a red card blank, and then mounted it with a kaiser craft journal card. I then printed out Chrismouse and coloured him with copic markers and cut him out and popped him up with double sided foam tape. To finish off I added some gems to the holly on his hat, a chipboard sentiment and some sequins in Christmas colours.
The colours I used are:

I printed Gandalf onto neenah and coloured him with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils. I also printed  the lady, colouring her with promarkers. I imported both images into Craft Artist 2 where I removed the white surround and added the background and the bubble around the lady. I hope you can see that Rick's images can be used again and again and look so different each time. Gandalf with a dream fantasy..
