Time for another challenge set by one of the Woodware retailers & the theme this month is "Mad Hatters" so I've taken this literally & used this lovely stencil from Dreamweaver. The hats are arranged in a line one below the other on the stencil so I have masked them & pasted them individually. I wanted to add  coloured embossing powders while the paste was still wet & then heat with a gun. You get a great textured effect this way & of course you don't have to wait for the paste to dry. As you can see I have used different shades of card to compliment each shade of embossing powder used & have decorated the hats with punched flowers, butterflies, leaves, feathers etc. For the background of the card I've used the stencil again but just applied inks from a chalk inkpad with a  stencil brush & added a Candi.To finish I've used the inverted corner punch on each "hat" square & have added the peel off greeting & clear Element. What a pity Easter is over for this year they could have been Easter bonnets!! Click onto one of Gwen's links to see what she's been up to!
