Mad Tea Party

Welcome to the Mad Tea Party hosted by A Fanciful Twist!  Please go to that site to see all the links to the party.



This is the first year that I'm attending the party.   I'm fashionably late as I misplaced my invitation....



I've made two tags for this linky party, Alice and the Mad Hatter.  I've woven into the story some previous art work.

Here is Alice.  She found the right key to enter Wonderland.


It's been quite an adventure chasing after that rabbit.  Where is he off to?


Ahead, she spies a spot of tea.  She thinks she'd like to stop and sit a spell.


And discovers she has stumbled upon a tea party hosted by the Mad Hatter.


Shall we join them?


Details on the Mad Hatter Tag as I'm using it for some other challenges which are listed below:

Papers:  Heidi Grace, DCWV as well as some paint swatches to make tag and paper piece outfit.

I made my own tag base and tag background, using some number stamps and a blank sliver of rubber (10/6).
Ancient Page Stone Gray ink pad and Copic marker C3 Cool Gray.
Edging:  Ranger Distress Ink Dusty Concord, Prismacolor Marker PM-115 Cool Grey, Dylusions stencil

Boy Stamp "The Boys in the Woods Series", from Thru the Woods
The face and hands are stamped on a Prima Flowers cardboard package.

Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps "Greetings from Wonderland" stamp set for the message on the hat "Mad as a Hatter".  (Also anaother greeting used on Alice Tag and the rabbit and watch on journal page).

Linking Mad Hatter Tag to: 

Summer of Color Week 3 at the Twinkle Twinkle blog:  Catching up with this one--lavender and gray with a pop of plum.
For this 6 week series, I'm making a paper doll for each week's color prompt.  Alice was made for the first week.


Crafty Secrets July Linky Party at the Heartwarming Vintage Blog--you gotta love having the perfect stamp for a project. Sentiments on both tags from Crafty Secrets---love that "Mad as a Hatter".  Also, the page from my paperbag book has the clock and rabbit from this stamp set

Hi Hélène, your fold out card and envelope looks great and I love how you used our Greetings from Wonderland Stamps. They have become a digital set now but I love that the designs are re-sizeable now. Anyways, thank you for joining our July Linky Party and good luck in the draw!
