House Mouse Monday and One Stop Challenges :-)







I made this card using the House Mouse Stamp 'Warmth for Winter' that I bought in winter and never used ! Shame on me I know !! :-) The sentiment stamps are from a new set Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Exclusive Set which are available from the Simon Says Stamp store I bought the HM stamp from there too, they have a fabulous range of these :-)

I masked the image so that only the mouse knitting would be inked, I used brown memento ink and then coloured the image with copics :-) I 3D'd her and mounted her on a nestie cut circle.
I colored the mouse wearing the hat and bootees to use on the inside :-)

The papers are Stamping Up, stardream shimmer pink and dark brown cardstock for layering. I also used some wool balls and a length of yarn :-)
I added sparkle with crystal gems and a little stickles :-)

I am entering this card into the House Mouse Monday Challenge which has asked us to use this fabulous sketch and the One Stop Craft Challenge
who's theme this week is Pink and Brown :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
