Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter ATC

Hi!  I've made my first Artist Trading Card in a long time!  We used to have a group making ATC's for trade every month.  It was so much fun!  I decided to enter Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge to play with this smaller surface.  For those of you who do not know, an Artist Trading Card is the same size as a playing card-2.5 x 3.5 inches. 

I started out with a piece of watercolor paper in the correct size.  I blended Tim Holtz Distress Stains in Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean, and Antique Bronze.   I printed out the Mad Hatter digital stamp from the Octopode Factory at 16 per the page on XPress paper.  I'm beginning to like digital stamps as long as they have a lot of detail.  

I colored the Mad Hatter with Copics and spread some Golden Rod Stickles over his hat and Orange Peel on his shoes.  I had the perfect matching ribbon in my stash and had to add it along with crystals on his hat pins.  I printed out the saying in Treasure Map Dead Hand (free font-forgot where I got it) and outlined it. The saying is part of the quote the Mad Hatter says to Alice.

I based my coloring on the model of Johnny Depp's version made by Disney.  This picture is a trademarked item, but I am not using this for sale, so I hope this is okay to display.
I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:
