Alice and Some Mushrooms

I love challenges that stretch your imagination so I was so happy to see this week's Octopode Factory Friday challenge: Mushrooms. I own one little mushroom image, and it just wouldn't work for this challenge. I ended up drawing my own 'shrooms, and I love how they came out. The Alice with Teapot Octopode image seemed to fit perfectly in this mushroom forest.

I love easel cards so I assembled it all on a scalloped circle easel card vase and added some handmade flowers made with the Spellbinder Blossom die and the EK Sucess 5 petal flower punch. I wet the 5 petal flower punches and twisted them to get this look. On the Blossom flower, I broke down the SU! cardstock with a stylus until it seperated and then cut the petals so they curled up.

I love this quote from Alice in Wonderland it seems to fit today's political environment perfectly. LOL!
