Queen, Rabbit, Hatter

 Another journal page! This time using some more of the digital images I bought from OCTOPODE FACTORY. When I saw that there were
ALICE IN WONDERLAND images of course, I just had to have them!
 This week the Oh Alice! challenge is to use some aspect of the game of chess. I have some nice chess piece stamps at home but as I'm not there I can't use them so had to think again!
 I decided to go with the black and white checkerboard pattern of the chess board. To make it I cut a square of cut 'n dry foam and dipped it into black paint before pressing it across the journal pages. I really like the way it turned out!
The digital images were printed onto plain printer paper and coloured with Inktense pencils. As the printer ink is not permenant some of it runs into the colour when you spread it with the water brush but.......I actually like that! Especially on the faces.......gives them a sort of grubby feel!

WOW! The chessboard is awesome! LOVE what you've done with the Octopode digis! It is as though they have become the chess pieces, which raises a critical question: How does the Rabbit piece move??? ;-)
