It's a Mad Mad World

This afternoon we came across a deranged girl wandering alone through the woods. Her eyes wide, she was muttering about rabbits and tea parties. The Lady Commander of Copics and I were utterly at a loss as to what to do for this poor lass. She seemed possessed, or under some sort of spell. Whatever the case may be, there was definitely some dark magic at work. We took the girl back to the Guild Hall and I sent a raven to Ish’tak, one of the village healers.

I started this bookmark by stamping “Alice” by The Octopode Factory on watercolour paper and colouring her with Distress Markers and the legendary Hydra Brush. To create the background, I spritzed various colours of Dylusions spray ink then used the “Luscious Leaves” stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the checkered pattern. I then stamped the edges with the one of the images from the Dylusions “Doodle Parts” set and coloured them in with Distress Markers. I stamped the Octopode Factory sentiment and cut it out to finish off the bookmark.
Before going insane, this mad mad bookmark will be entered into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #249: Anything Goes
The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge: Anything Goes
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #52: Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody #10: Anything Goes
One Crazy Stamper January “Anything Goes” Challenge
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #5: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: The totally mad (no rules) tea party

Before Ish’tak could arrive to assess the girl, she had disappeared from the room we had placed her in to lay down. I don’t know if I am more worried for her safety, or for that of anyone who may come across her in this state. I’ve dispatched some riders to locate her before something happens. What a way to begin the next trip around the sun.
