Changes - Altered Alice

(Turn and face the strain)
Don't want to be a richer man
(Turn and face the strain)
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can't trace time

This month Stampotique is the sponsor over at the Altered Alice Challenge Blog - the theme is Changes in Form and Dress Forms....

I used images and sentiments from Stampotique on my project that reflect change to go along with the Altered Alice Theme.  Mushrooms  (large and small) as they change in size and shape, added butterfly wings to Midge; and some paper piecing to her dress.  I thought the sentiment was perfect for the challenge!

The images were stamped in Black on Matte coated card stock, then masked.  I added used the Spectrum Roll Technique to add color to the BG (Blue Frost), removed the masks and colored the mushrooms/grass with markers.  For the Butterfly Wings, I used the Antiqued Glimmers (Wild Honey/Mustard Seed inks) technique, and Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper for the Paper Piecing.

Charming project, love those shrooms and the little butterfly girl! I have you on the slate to post this as a Stampotique Guest Designer on The Altered Alice this Sunday, so I may remove you from the link tool when that post goes live. Is that ok? You will be featured in the post rather than being in the linky. Thanks so much for playing along with The Altered Alice!

Ok, you are live on The Altered Alice now! Love your post - I now have David Bowie singing "Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes" in my head and goodness knows when that will stop, LOL! Luckily I really like that song! Charming creation, the butterfly girl is so sweet and you have used one of my fave quotes. Lovely colors too, so pretty!
