Hello Wonderfully Mad Hatter


I am so excited because today is my start as a Design Team member of the Alphabet Challenge Blog team. The  new challenge is to create with Checks as patterned paper or a stamp.

For me, I chose to create my own background paper using a stencil. This helped to carry out the mad theme throughout the card which includes the patterns in the die cuts. And of course the image I chose. The coloring of the hatter was done with alcohol markers. And the mushrooms were stamped with a light ink color. Then I used colored pencils on them. I created some Post-It masks for the mushrooms and the hatter. After which I created the scene using homemade stencils.

Stamps: TGF Wonderland
Paper: CTMH White Daisy
Ink: CTMH Intense Black, Almond, Peacock, Charcoal, Fern
Accessories: Visible Image Distorted Chess stencil, homemade stencil (MFT Grassy Edges, SU! Rainbow Builder Framelits), Prismacolor Premier Pumpkin Orange, Cadmium Orange Hue, Hot Pink, Neon Pink, 10% French Grey, Aquamarine, Light Aqua, Cobalt Turquoise, Apple Green, Spring Green, Imperial Violet, Dioxazine Purple Hue, Amazon makeup brush, Shin Han R11 Carmine, BG61 Peacock Green, B68 Turquoise Blue, R5 Cherry Pink, Spectrum Noir Triblend Dark Red, Coral, Orange, Ice Grey, Ice Blue, Blue Turquoise, Fair Skin, Tim Holtz Stitched Circles, Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B, Fantastix, CTMH Round Sponge
