Love Love Love


So this weeks challenge was House Mouse and all the DT members have done a fab job I have to say! I picked the mice from the Love Set, Snuggle Up as this image reminds me of my two lovely doggies who do the exact same pose with each other.

I used Tim Holtz, Victorian Velvet Distress Ink for the background card.
For the greeting panel I used versamark to stamp a line of greetings onto glossy card and brayered over it with the Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I found that Distress Inks work well for brayering but it takes longer to dry. Then I overstamped one of the greetings with Stazon to highlight the words and give a shadow effect.
I also used a resist, brayered background for the Love backing.
I then stamped the mice in Rich Cocoa Memento, as it is softer than Tuxedo Black and coloured the image in with promarkers. As a last touch I used glossy accents in the hearts made by the mice tails to give a little highlight.

I hope you have enjoyed House Mouse week, next week is Papers!!

Take Care Beth XXX
