Good Sunday afternoon to you all. I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather we are having today. Winter seems an awful long way off but to bring things back to earth here is another Christmas card -
Today's card uses an image from Crafter's companions Makey Bakey mouse range and is called Christams carols. He is so cute. It has been coloured with the following Promarkers -
- mouse - ivory, oatmeal, spice, burnt orange, terracotta, baby pink, pastel pink, warm grey 1 and warm grey 2
- coat and hat - red, poppy, berry red, ice grey 1 and ice grey 2
- song sheet - cool grey 1, pine green and berry red
- sky - pastel blue
- shadow - cool grey 1
I then cut several pieces of holly using a Dies'sire die and some green core'dinations and several pieces of ivy using a Marianne die and the same green Core'dinations.
I arranged them on the card as shown and added some red dew drops (from The Ribbon Girl).
I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set with versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I then cut the sentiment out using Spellbinder's Marvelous squares and inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink. Once I had removed it from the die I inked around the edge with antique linen distress ink.
To finish I added some pearls again from The Ribbon Girl.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -

Thank you very much for stopping by.
