OH Alice Chapter 8

CHAPTER 8: You can learn a lot of things from the FLOWERS...

'Never mind!' Alice said in a soothing tone, and stooping down to the daisies, who were just beginning again, she whispered, `If you don't hold your tongues, I'll pick you!'

There was silence in a moment, and several of the pink daisies turned white.
`That's right!' said the Tiger-lily. `The daisies are worst of all. When one speaks, they all begin together, and it's enough to make one wither to hear the way they go on!'
`How is it you can all talk so nicely?' Alice said, hoping to get it into a better temper by a compliment. `I've been in many gardens before, but none of the flowers could talk.'

Hello everyone! What a sweet, sunny sign of Spring it is when all of our floral friends come out to play! Here at the Oh, Alice! Blog, we definitely agree with Alice that you can learn a lot of things from the flowers!

Happy Stamping and Happy Spring!

Here is my take on this week's Challenge.  I used Pigtails found at Stampotique, I drew in the paintbrush with the red paint on it, she does not have that paint brush originally!  Designer paper from Pine Cone Press' Spooky line, and Reminisce's 10.31 line.  The stamped tree image is from PaperArtsy and I went over it with Black Diamond stickles.  Flowers are from Prima, and I had to actually use Copic's Opaque to create the White flower being painted red effect.  I had to paint the flower White as it was already red... but you get what I was going for right?  Ribbon is from Joann's, and the small black pearls are from Queen and Co.  Enjoy!
