Merry Mouse

Hi guys

Sharing another Christmas make with you today.

These stamps are from two Clearly Besotted sets I had yet to ink up, and they work brilliantly together.

I began by stamping and masking the mouse image on Strathmore Bristol cardstock, then stamped the fireplace before watercolouring with my Zig markers.  To add a little interest to the card base I stamped and heat embossed the outline snowflakes with a pearl embossing powder.  The panel was die cut with a stitched rectangle and mounted on fun foam.  To finish I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in white on a strip of black cardstock.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Cosy Christmas, Merry Mouse; Docrafts - Snowflakes
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White, White Pearl
  • Coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
  • Die: Create a Smile - Cool Cuts Double Stitched Rectangles
