Mad Hatter & White Rabbit

Well, what can I say... I'm back home but where do I even begin! I can now fully sympathize with anyone who has had pneumonia. But the good news is, I'm back home and have access to the internet... in between my long naps, of course. LOL So to start off, I have a long awaited project to show off using some Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!!


This is a journal page I made at the end of November and was saving it for one of my last posts as a Kraftin' Kimmie Guest towards the end of the December. So maybe we can pretend it's the last Friday in December for a few minutes and I can give my proper farewells. It was such a fun time being their guest and I loved making each of my projects - thanks Kimmie!! :D


For my project I used the new Mad Hatter and White Rabbit from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and in the background I used Country Sunset from Make it Crafty. The sketch I used is actually from a previous Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge - Challenge #108 and stretched it to fit the journal size page. I also used one of Kimmie's Sentiment from Wonderland Sentiments.


Here are close up pictures of the Mad Hatter and White Rabbit. I almost felt stuck in what colors I used but I took inpsiration in the background I colored and came up with this combination. Then I added some white paisly designs to the hattter's vest with a gel pen for some details.


I've colored the White Rabbit before but this time I've gone with more traditional colors scheme - abandoning the Andy Warhol style. LOL I used Cool Grays for the clothing and Warm Grays for the rabbit to help distinguish the two different colors. I think I used Neutural Grays in the Mad Hatter.


Finally, here's a closeup of the background image, Country Sunset. I wanted a whimsical look so I used more bright colors and colored the road red and the rocks purple. LOL I thought it would fit the Wonderland theme a little better and liked how it came together. Thanks again Kimmie for asking be to be a guest! :D

  10. Love it! The Alice in Wonderland theme never gets old, no matter how man times it's done, and I love the background.

    Glad you're feeling better as well. I'm very familiar with the "crackle" side of life, but I'm sure being home and comfy will make a big difference.
