Mad Hatter - Inks vs. Watercolor?


I'm in a swap for "Tea, Coffee, or Hot Chocolate" on the stamp-shack. With my muse missing in action of late, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do, so I started pursuing through my collection of stamps to see if something called to my muse. My DS saw me shuffling through my stamps and asked what I was doing. When I told him, he said, it would be great if you had a mad hatter! You see, my son just finished reading the Lewis Carol version of Alice in Wonderland and aboslutely loves it. Well, as luck would have it, I had a Mad Hatter stamp!! I rarely collect word stamps, but the saying I used on this card, I just loved, so paired with the Mad Hatter stamp just felt perfect to me! I made this one last night. I played with a handful of layouts and on a couple of different papers. I was just playing, but in that play, I lost time. Isn't that the best!! This one is done with different distress inks, which is not a medium I use often. I finished is last night, but didn't upload it because I wanted to try something else too.


My favorite medium is watercolors and acrylics. So, I decided to do this layout all over again, but in watercolors. So, first thing this morning, I played all over again. I'm just loving this layout. I think, next I'll do it on tiles!

If you notice, the Mad Hatter has a pretty cool cup of tea. It's only half a cup of tea, but I love that it's cut in half lengthwise (taken from the story!) and the tea doesn't fall out!! OK, so which one do you like better, the inks or the watercolors?

I love it when I lose time while playing!!! Tough call on the colors. . . I'm more drawn to the colors of the distress inks, but the words pop more with the watercolor. I love them both!
