Dormouse Tea

Hello.  Welcome.  I couldn't decide what the Mad Hatter would be saying so I left him dumb.  I am sure that's coffee in his cup cos who would want the tea when the dormouse is asleep in the pot!

I was inspired by the colours and shapes at Waffle Flower.  I used a pink base card and added black archival smudges.  I ripped a panel from watercolour paper and coloured with brusho's.  I cut some blue card using Spellbinders Square Swatches dies and arranged them as a background.  I stamped Stamplorations Mad Hatter and watercoloured him.
