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.
So this week I decided to do something a little different.  I’m not sure if you can tell or not but where Alice is peeking in is covered in glossy accents (so is the drink me bottle but I really wanted the opening to show).

This illustration is done by Oleg Lipchenko.  I think it is adorable.  I really like his illustrations.

Please don’t forget to go by the Oh! Alice Challenge blog because you never know what we have up our sleeve.

OK, I screwed up. It was Emma that just had a birthday, not you. I'm an idiot.

What a WONDERful illustration with so many fascinating details! Love the glossy accents - not only does it add a nice glassy shine but it intensifies the color - gorgeous! the peek-a-boo idea is perfect for this image! Love it!
