Cute Card Thursday

Today's project is for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge and the theme is......


So here's my project, a Vintage Mad Hatter's Hat. It is 9 inches tall and 11 inches wide.

I have used a SVG Attic kit called Mad Tea Party kit. I've used the files that make the hat base, the price tag and the rolled flowers for this one. All cut on my Silhouette Cameo.
The black card is from Papermill Direct and I have embossed it and then used pewter gilding wax to bring the embossing out. I cut out the price using Papermill kraft card.
For the stamped images which are from Artistic Outpost I used Papermill luxury artist pad which is like a watercolour card. I stamped them with TH vintage photo distress ink and then used a water pen to drag the colour. 
For the embellishments I cut the rolled flower file and used the same distress ink to colour the edges of the flowers. The lace has also been coloured with the ink. The hat pins were originally pink or white but I covered them in embossing ink and then embossed them with distress gold embossing powder. A little sprinkle of frantage fragments on the brim and it's finished.

Our sponsor this week is Sunflower Field.
