Oh Alice Challenge

I've had this Mad Hatter image from Bugaboo Digi Images for a couple of weeks now. I've actually made some ATCs with it for a swap further down the line. I really like it and he's great fun to colour. This morning I stumbled across a challenge blog OH ALICE which is based on Alice in Wonderland and so I thought I had to take part. The theme is 'Small Print' and you must use some text on your project. Here's my green and gold card:


Can you see I'vegone a bit old school and used something I haven't used in ages - PEEL OFFS! Used then for the sentiment and the border around the card. I typed the text in Publisher and then placed the PNG version of the Mad Hatter on top. The PNG version has a transparent background but the main image is filled in white so he can still be coloured. I love that about the Bugaboo images (you do get a JPG too so you have both types).

Welcome to the Bugaboo Design Team. I am so happy you are joining us. I really like your work and just know you will be a great addition. Love the Mad Hatter. The movie was so incredible I think I will have to make a collage using a bunch of images from all the different Digi artists. How fun will that be? Welcome again.
