Mad About You...

Hiya! Today I get to go see Alice In Wonderland! I hope I have not built it up in my head so much that I am disappointed....In the meantime, I have been having a blast playing in the challenges that the Oh Alice blog has each weekend. This week's was a color challenge - Red, Purple and Blue - inspired by the O.P.I. fingernail polish collection "Wonderland".

I have actually been playing around with this card for several days. I was so thrilled with my Hatter when I finished him, but I feel like I need a re-do on the rest of the card! Oh, well... I made the Hatter by combining the head of Twisted Tea (a digi from The Greeting Farm) with the upper body of the Anya from the Showtime set (I did keep Twisted Tea's tie, though). I drew some new legs for him. (I did this by cutting out the upper body I was going to use, then tracing it on my cardstock as reference lines so I knew where the pants should start. Once the pants were drawn and colored I cut them out and glued them under the upper body.) I also cut off some of Twisted Tea's hair and gave him the Hatter's hat from the Wonderland set. I tried to give him the hat from Showtime but it was too small to cover Twisted Tea's teacup! I made the background with the teacup from the Wonderland set (I am lucky enough to have the rubber version, but it has been re-released in digi! It is such a great set with the CUTEST rabbit and accessories!)

I love your card! Adorable. We just saw Alice also, and because I heard not so great things about it, I was prepared to be disappointed and was just the opposite. It's funny how our minds play tricks on us.
