Left Of Centre Challenge #23


Welcome back lovely people, I hope you are all well and enjoying your crafting. 



Today is Mid-Month Inspirationg time over on the wonderful 'Left Of Centre Creative Challenges Blog'
The current challenge is #23 'Scarey Stories'.



This challenge is sponsored by the wonderful Ike's Art, who provided us with some amazing images to use. 


I chose to use the image 'The Hatter'. It was fate that this image was provided, as the first story I thought of when I saw the theme was 'Alice in Wonderland'. 
Now I know to most, this is a harmless story...to me this is a dark and mental story that has scared me since I was a kid. I won't even watch the cartoon adaptations of the story. 
I managed to watch the Johnny Depp version, for obvious reasons lol 


Right....on to what I have made with my Ike's Image for Left Of Centre?....



I think you will agree, the image is brilliant!! I coloured him using my Derwent water coloured pencils and a fine Koi water brush. 

I had amazing fun making this card. I ripped, curled, distressed, inked, sprayed and splatted all for one make :-) 

I wanted to have bright colours in the backing scene, but dull them down with distress inking around the edging and spray ink over the page. 
The blue mirri card I sanded down to give it great distressed areas. 

I stamped the famous wording 'we're all mad in here' and cut the letter tiles out, I have glossy accented certain areas to highlight them to stand out. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:



2. Musically Challenged - Songs Inspired by Alice in Wonderland - http://musicallychallengedchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/challenge-17.html
The music that inspired this card is the Alice In Wonderland (score) 2010 - Alices Theme by Sakura Jurai. This is a very haunting piece of music that, to me, fits the darker side of Alice In Wonderland. It's from the 2010 Disney production, which is where the backing images are taken from.

3. Simon Says Stamp - A is for (Alice in Wonderland) http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/904/ 


5. The Crafting Cafe - Anything Goes - http://thecraftingcafe.blogspot.co.uk

6. Through The Craftroom Door - Anything Goes http://ttcrd.blogspot.co.uk

7. Divas By Design - Anything Goeshttp://divasbydesignchallenge.blogspot.co.uk

8. Crafty Girls Challenges - Anything Goes - http://4kraftygirlzchallenges.blogspot.co.uk



I hope this card has shown people that if I can produce something so different like this, then anyone can. 
The Left Of Centre isn't just for alternative style makes, it's for anything from cute to gothic! 

I really hope you will pop over and play along with is, for a chance to win some brilliant Ike's images.


Thank you for your continued support...

Lisa, this is an amazing piece of art. I wish I could create work like this.
And I agree, don't like a lot of the cartoon films as I find them very scary, even at my advanced age!
