Mad Hatter Luka - La-La Land Crafts GDT

Happy Monday everyone.  It's me again starting off the week with my GDT post for La-La Land Crafts.

This week the theme is 'Use your Scraps'.  Not too difficult a one for me as I always have odds and ends lying around and I keep a whole basket of scrap paper.

One thing that's great to do with your scrap paper is to paper piece your image, and that's what I've done today. I warn you, today's card is bright, you might need your sunglasses lol.

La-La Land Craft Items Used:


I love Mad Hatter Luca, he's just so much fun and so suited to piecing up with all different patterns and colours of scrap paper.  Where I didn't paper piece him, I coloured him with Copics.
I used papers from the Authentique range and some Bazill card.  As usual I stitched my papers with coloured top stitch thread, I could really go to town on the colours here.

I framed him with the Random Flag Banner cut into pieces and slipped a couple of Whimsical Trees behind, they're just perfect for this whimsical image! Love that teapot charm that's popped on my bows, just the thing for a mad hatter.

I used a little ticket sentiment to finish him off. The gems were coloured with my copics to match the image and papers.

Well that's all from me today, I'll be back tomorrow with my Dies to Die for DT post (and it's one of my best), in the meantime why not hop over to the blog and take a look at the rest of the DT's creations, they are quite fantastic.  See you soon. : ) x x
