Hi again! I’m popping in to share that I’m over on the Jane’s Doodles blog today as well. I’m sharing this sweet Christmas card featuring the Merry Mice digital stamp.
I started by choosing one of the mouse images and colored it with my copic markers. Then I trimmed it out and set it aside. For my background, I cut a piece of kraft cardstock and inked it up with some brown dye ink and a blending brush. Then I smooshed some in on my glass mat, watered it down and flicked it on the panel. I also splattered some gold watercolor on the panel for some shimmer.
Next, I die cut a tag from the Trinty Stamps Holiday Tag die set and inked it up with the same brown ink. Then I die cut a Trinity Stamps Nested Heart and embossed it with a Pink & Main houndstooth embossing folder. I inked the edges of the heart and flicked some gold watercolor on it to tie things together.
For assembly, I added the kraft panel to a white card base with liquid glue and the heart to the tag as well. Then I popped the mouse and sentiment up with foam squares. I threaded some gingham ribbon through the tag hole and tied it with baker’s twine. Then I popped the tag up with foam tape.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the mouse’s nose and the ornaments on her tree too. I thought the sentiment was a little stark white against everything else so I just used the ink already in my brown blending brush to tone it down a bit.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
