Mouse Mobile

I'm slightly ashamed to say that I don't think I've ever used this stamp before and I must have had it for at least 2 years. I tried to colour this one so it could be used for a man as well as a woman, and also decided to try colouring a penny black stamp with promarkers for the first time.

Products used:
  • Stamps - Penny Black
  • Papers - K&Co
  • Embellishments - Card Candy, Foiled Happy Birthday Message
  • Tools - Promarkers, Distress Inks
I am entering this card for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Out of this World (I'm hoping that mice using a mobile phone qualifies) (Sun 1 Aug)


Gold Fishing

I have quite a lot of larger house mouse stamp that have been a bit neglected recently. Since i started doing mainly square card I've not really used then as they are too big, for some reason its never really occurred to me before to use part of the image rather than the whole thing.

Products used:

  • Stamp - House Mouse Images, Stampendous Bubble
  • Papers - Hot of the press
  • Embellishments - Die Cut Corners, Card Candy, Clear Glitter Embossing Powder
  • Tools Used - Prisma Pencils, Nestabilites

  • Papers - Nitwits Collection
  • Embellishments - Paper flowers, Punched leaves, Dies cut Corners and Sign, Silver Chain, Adhesive Gems. Glimmer Mists
