The Christmas Mouse

Hello again! Well, it's cold and blustery here today with our first snow fall of the season. I'm thankful it's not sticking yet, I need new tires for my Jeep and can't get them until tomorrow. Once that happens, what ever happens, happens.
Anyhoo, I have a card I want to share with you that I made using the Merry Mice stamp set and water colored using Wink of Stella rather than water! I know! Crazy, right? But it worked and it's so sparkly! I just love it!

The close up shot shows the sparkle a little more. It still doesn't do this card any justice. I started with a standard card base of Emerald Envy and layered a piece of Presents and Pinecones DSP cut at 3 3/4" x 5" and 2 pieces of Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut 3" square. I stamped the image onto Watercolor paper (I used my MISTI to stamp the image 3 times to get a nice dark crisp image) using Basic Black Archival ink, and I stamped the sentiment with the same. I then colored the image using the clear Wink of Stella glitter pen using Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, his nose is Basic Grey, inside ears, Pink Pirouette, and his body is Smoky Slate. The star and the gold parts of the ornament are done in gold Wink of Stella.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Please leave a comment below, I would love to here what you think.
Happy Stamping,
