SCD - Mad March Hare

What a fab lot of creations from the DT this week for the start of a new month focusing on ATC's over at SCD with the theme this week being Mad March Hare set by Laura.....and what's that I see? Chriss from the Artist Trading Club is guest designer....go over and take a look.

I could not wait to get my thinking cap on and here is the result.

I googled the knave of hearts and found the old playing card image on Wikipedia printed it out and stuck it to the base card....did the same with the mask....I love Venetian masks don't you?...I also found in my searching that the original mad march hare in Alice in Wonderland was drawn with straw in his seems it was a Victorian depiction of madness!!
...I've gone mad myself and given the hare points of the compass for eyes!!!...I also embossed the mask although It does not show up well on the photo.....much better irl.
(Tanda Stamps for the compass and the postage stamp)
......the word fragments are part of a phrase from AinW when the hare is at the Mad Hatters tea least I think it is when they are at the tea party!!! LOL
.........crackle painted the larger heart in fired brick and glittered the little heart.

I can't seem to get Alice in Wonderland out of my head at the moment.....have you seen the trailer on my sidebar? I am so looking forward to seeing that film.....looks like a grand grown up version.

Thanks for looking and don't forget.........we are all going to send our ATC's in at the end of the month and get swaps!

xoxo Sioux
P.S. I've at last got round to buying some ATC pockets for them fromTanda along with the two stamps I used above
...................and they popped two free stamps in with the order isn't that great?!
