Mo Manning - Hatter...

Happy Easter everyone....

Hope your having a lovely long weekend and that you get lots of choccy eggs. Just the thing to nibble on whilst you craft :-)

I'm here today to show you a card I made recently for my Dad's birthday. Then I'm off to clear my craft room ready to decorate.

The image I chose was Mo Manning's Hatter. She has some absolutely fabulous images for all occasions.

I really enjoyed colouring him up, he's such a jolly chap.
The papers are from a Polka Doodles CD I've had for a while called Wonderland.
Here's a close up of the inside showing the cute paper with  lots of Alice in Wonderland images.

This close up of the image shows just what a great image he is. All that tea and cake...He would fit right into our household - the kettle's always on! Tea anyone?

He's been coloured with my usual copics.

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R21
Trousers: B21, B23, B26 V12, V15, V17
Hat: C0, C1, C3, C5, C7
Jacket: V12, V15, V17 G20, G21, G24
Waistcoat: E70, E71, E74, E77
Shirt: R81, R83, R85
Shadow: W00, W0, W1, W3

For the embellishments I've used the Tim Holtz Weathered Clock and Hardward Findings. The sentiment is Set 9 Mixed Circular Sentiments by LOTV and I can't remember where the cute little kettle came from.
