Christmas Mouse

Stamping time has been kind of hard to come by lately. This is a quick and easy card for the holidays...but I actually like it!

The main image is Penny Black's Christmas Mouse rubber stamp. I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored using Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush.

I put a thin layer of White Liquid Applique on the top of the stocking. While it was still wet I added some Art Institute Glitter Crystal Ultrafine Glitter .

The little mouse head was stamped again, colored and popped up with foam tape.



The designer paper is from the My Mind's Eye Colorful Christmas paper kit. I used my Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Edge punch to make the two strips on each side of the striped panel. The cardstock used is Vibrant Pink Prismatics .

The ribbon is May Arts White Sheer . The button is from my stash...and was threaded with May Arts Pink Burlap String .

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
