Time for our next monthly challenge over at The Altered Alice Blog.
Join Us for a MAD TEA PARTY!There are two Mad Hatter Days every year, and one of them is this month! In the United States, October 6th is Mad Hatter Day as we abbreviate our dates as month/day. In the United Kingdom, Mad Hatter Day is June 10th as they abbreviate their dates as day/month. So what do these dates have to do with the Mad Hatter? In the original Tenniel illustrations, the Mad Hatter has a price tag tucked into his hat band. It says "In this Style 10/6" which, for us ingnorant Yankees means ten schillings and sixpence, or half a guineau back in Alice's day! So Mad Hatter Day falls on 10/6, and here at The Altered Alice, instead of choosing between date systems, we just celebrate twice a year!!!
Our generous sponsor this month is The Artistic Stamper, and they are offering a £15 pound voucher for The Artistic Stamper stamps! Jennie has kindly provided our design team with the Mabel Lucie Attwell Mad Hatter Stamp for our projects this month.
This is what I have created this month with our stamp from The Artistic Stamper.
I decided to decorate a clock from the Bo Bunny Timepiece range. I cut three circles from Bazzil card and stamped the Mabel Lucie Attwell image onto the three circles, choosing a different section of the stamp each time, sponging the edges with vintage photo Distress Ink.
The challenge this month is to create a project to celebrate the Mad Hatter, AND to bring something to our Mad Tea Party! Here are the design team's party contributions:
The Altered Alice Blog and we will announce the winner of the £15 voucher for The Artistic Stamper stamps on Sunday, June 26! Happy Mad Hatter Day from The Altered Alice!
I look forward to seeing your creations this month, Tracy xx
