We're Going Retro

Our lovely DT member, Elaine, has set the theme today for our newest challenge at Mo's and it's about "Going Retro" to the look of the 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's...

With all of the hoopla of Johnny Depp in the latest version of Alice's escapades last year, I chose Mo's version of the White Rabbit from the fairy tale "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll. The Walt Disney version was first introduced in 1951  (my babysitter told me about it - HA!) and was a compilation of Carroll's tale and pieces of Through the Looking-Glass.. nevertheless, a great story.

But let's get real here, friends. I think Alice was smoking something.. don't you agree??.. she was small one minute and big the next. Magic mushrooms perhaps?

This cute little guy was always worried about time and about being late..

He sure looks like he's ready to party (NOT!!). Look at that poor face.. he looks exhausted.  The clock was made with a SU stamp I had and I cut off the surrounding words and simply created the hands and added a brad.. the banner font was computer-generated. The background paper is a piece of vellum from my scrap pile onto Kraft paper.  He was a joy to color and shade with copics.

I'm also entering this in these challenges...
