Oh Alice Chapter 24: Windows and Broken Glass...

`Now tell me, Pat, what's that in the window?' 

`Sure, it's an arm, yer honour!' (He pronounced it `arrum.')

`An arm, you goose! Who ever saw one that size? Why, it fills the whole window!'

`Sure, it does, yer honour: but it's an arm for all that.'

`Well, it's got no business there, at any rate: go and take it away!'

There was a long silence after this, and Alice could only hear whispers now and then; such as, `Sure, I don't like it, yer honour, at all, at all!' `Do as I tell you, you coward!' and at last she spread out her hand again, and made another snatch in the air. This time there were TWO little shrieks, and more sounds of broken glass. `What a number of cucumber-frames there must be!' thought Alice. `I wonder what they'll do next! As for pulling me out of the window, I only wish they COULD! I'm sure I don't want to stay in here any longer!' 

Hello's CRYSTAL CLEAR that today you're all joining us for a fabulous challenge here at Oh, Alice!   We have all sorts of lovely techniques for you to try today!

Your mission today with Oh, Alice, should you choose to accept it, is to try a technique using cracked glass, crystal effects (or glossy accents), or a window stamp/technique.  There are TONS of possibilities with today's challenge and we are SO ready to see all of the fabulous creations you enter!

So I decided to make a card with an acetate window in it. It's a little hard to see it in the photo, but the centre has been cut out to create a window that shows through to the inside of the card. I made this card for my husband's Nan who turns 88 tomorrow, she is such a beautiful person and very much loved in this house! So I know it is a shock, but I haven't used my copics for this card!! It was strange to not have to color in once I had stamped, but I really enjoyed making this card! Hope you like it!

And don't forget to pop over to the Oh Alice blog to see the rest of the Amazing DT's creation!
