Mad as a Hatter

Not me personally - although some would probably agree with that statement! But I'm talking about my card for today.

I was asked to make a Mad Hatter card for a birthday boy, so I duly purchased and downloaded my Mad Hatter from Mo's Digital pencil and got colouring. I used my promarkers - and I don't think I left the ink to dry long enough as they ended up looking rather muddy, but okay. Then I started to add shading around the image and it all went wrong! It looked like he'd got smoke coming from his derrière! lol..

So after another print out, I set off colouring my next image. Let me tell you... I was really mad that I'd messed up my first one after an hour of colouring!!

Anyway.. here's the result.

I chose to colour the card completely in my prisma's and I didn't have any papers to hand for colour matching but fortunately these old Doodlebug ones suited the image perfectly!

As the card was for a boy, I kept it quite simple and just used buttons to embellish. These buttons were from the same Doodlebug pack that the papers and card were in. It also fits in perfectly with the Samuel Taylor challenge for June, which is a card for a MALE.


This close up shows the shading of the image.. and the image below is the sentiment.


I hope you like it!
