Aren't these mice just the cutest? Can you believe that I have had this stamp for over a year and it's never seen ink? It's a crime, I know ;) I actually have about 10 Penny Blacks that have yet to see ink, but shhhh...don't tell my hubby!
I was feeling in the Valentine's Day spirit a little early and wanted to ink up these guys so I got busy and made this "could-be" Valentine's Card because the image is just so sweet. These little mice scream "pucker up" but alas, I didn't have a stamp that said that to match *sigh*
I water coloured these little guys with my tombow markers and a water brush, and then cut them out to layer them. I then sponged the blue background in and then placed my mice on it to spotlight them and then added this little metal rose embellishment that I found on sale :) I just had to have them...it was like a gravitational pull towards the pretties...an uncontrollable impulse. Ok, maybe not but I do think that one fits right at home on this card - it's like a match made in heaven :)
While making this card, I got to use one of my new Martha Stewart Punches too...ok, maybe I used a couple of those punches but only because I scored a wicked deal on them at Michaels for 60% off the already reduced price and I have been absolutely itching to try them! Just sayin' :) I paired the mini hearts punch up with my cuttlebug dies to make this fun little tag. I love how this card turned out and am thrilled that I finally inked up this stamp that has been very lonely on my shelf!
The time has come that I can announce that my Water Colouring with Tombow Markers class is open for enrollment again! This class is a 6 week online class and starts on Feb 2, 2010 - that's only 2 1/2 weeks away peoples :) The cost is $50 USD and it's perfect because you can learn on your own schedule, with printable information and videos with moi for your viewing pleasure ;) Come and join me for the fun and learn how to use your markers along the way!
