This 'Cheshire Cat' is my entry for the March Madness Challenge at Frilly and Funkie Blog.  The theme is Alice In Wonderland and we were to make a project with one of our favorite characters.  Challenge information can be found HERE.

I started with a section of a tree limb from the backyard.

I then attached it to a section cut out of a larger branch to make the base.

Then I just started attaching all the leaves and vines I cut from various floral and leaf dies.  The speech bubble reads:  I'm not reality is just different than yours!

This is the image I started with for the cat.  I brought it into Photoshop Elements 18 and recolored it.

Close up of my Cheshire Cat hiding in the tree.  I used Wink of Stella on the teeth to make them glossy.

Here's the backside.  Completed project measures about 8 1/2" x  8 1/2".

PS...I am so happy to announce that on Monday, April 15, my 'Cheshire Cat' was chosen as the winning entry!  As the winner I will be the 'Guest Designer' at Frilly & Funkie  Challenge Blog on Thursday, May 9th.  I'm so excited.  I hope you all will come to see what the theme will be for the May Challenge and join in the fun... 

...Thanks for stopping by...
