"They don't keep this room so tidy as the other,' Alice thought to herself, as she noticed several of the chessmen down in the hearth among the cinders: but in another moment, with a little `Oh!' of surprise, she was down on her hands and knees watching them. The chessmen were walking about, two and two!

`Here are the Red King and the Red Queen,' Alice said (in a whisper, for fear of frightening them), `and there are the White King and the White Queen sitting on the edge of the shovel -- and here are two castles walking arm in arm..."

--Ch. 1: Through the Looking Glass

The challenge this week is again the brainchild of DT member Lynne-to use some aspect of the game of chess! You might want to use a checkerboard pattern, or feature a King, Queen, Knight or Castle (Rook), or some other aspect of the game we haven't thought of - we just need to be able to clearly see CHESS in your creation!

 For my card I chose to use Darcy from the Victorian Beauties Collection of Digistamps by Simply Betty Stamps.  I printed out my chessboard background and Darcy onto glossy photo paper, and coloured with my promarkers, before cutting and adhering to a black card base.  To finish it off I created a label sentiment, and added some black and white card candy and pearls.

Thank you for visiting

Wow! Glossy is so hard to color on, much less forgiving than regular card stock! I can't believe how great your coloring looks! The floor is fab and the sentiment printed on labels is such a cool touch! I drink hot tea all day long, gotta have my PG Tips, so it's ALWAYS time 4 tea at my house!!! Great card!
