TTIC #47 The Backstory of Alice Cullen

Welcome to another Tuesday! Twilight Tuesday no less!
This week Julie has given us our challenge, it is to make something based on Alice's backstory.

"Our theme is specifically about Alice’s past, before she met the Cullen family and was known as Mary Alice Brandon. We don’t know too many details about Alice’s life before the events of the Twilight saga occur, but if you would like a refresher on her past, visit the Twilight Saga Wiki here and read!

The craft portion is to depict an aspect of Alice’s history. You can take your inspiration from what we know from the actual Stephenie Meyer text, or you can use your imagination to depict something that could have happened in Alice’s past.

The comment portion – talk a bit about Alice’s gift. Would you like to possess her ability to see the future? Do you think that that would be a blessing or a curse?"

She comes from Biloxi Mississippi and as I was talking to Donna the brainstorming happened, i chose to go Southern Vintage feel to it.
I used the Details stamp from Unity Stamp Company and I wrote the details myself. The base is dark chocolate, spring moss and Sultry dp from BasicGrey.I distressed all the edges. Lace is from some old curtains! Chipboard is from an old christmas set from Me and My Big Ideas. I sponged everything with river rock and chocolate chip ink. I also Used the TTSC #11!!

Stamps Used: Details-Unity Stamp Company
Papers Used: Sultry dp-BasicGrey, white cs, dark chocolate, spring moss-PTI
Ink uSed:Chocolate chip , river rock-SU
Acessories USed: some old lace, chipboard, sponge, black sharpie
