Multi Challenge Card

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Hi everyone, hope you’ve all had a good weekend. I’ve managed to make a card that covers five challenges and it’s not often that that happens for me :), the first is Cute Card Thursday, glitter me silly and my card is well glittered :), can’t seem to make a card without stickles! The Craft Garden has a theme of sparkle too, Secret Crafter have a theme of the four seasons and I’ve chosen winter, By the Cute and Girly have a winter wonderland theme. At Allsorts this week they’d like to see a card for a child and this cute mouse is suitable for that I think.
I’ve used this cute Whiff of Joy Henry Mouse stamp, coloured it with copic markers and then I’ve gone over most of it with a copic spica clear glitter pen, a sakura sparkle gel pen on the step and lots of Stardust stickles. The layers are cut with nestabilities labels dies and the background paper is BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses which is getting a good outing this week, and everything is edge sponged with Tattered Rose distress ink. I’ve done faux stitching with a Pentel white hybrid pigment ink gel pen and I’ve found that this is best white ink pen I’ve used, much better than the inkssentials as the ink is very white and flows really nicely. To decorate I also added some white tulle from the lovely Tab at Tabbycrafts, some glittery flowers and clear gems. TFL.

A fabulous card Chris, all the elements come together perfectly in this!
Funny to see you entered it for 5 challenges, I've just done the same with my card and I never usually manage more than one at a time. There must be something in the water lol!

Crissy Armstrong said...

Oh Chris, this is stunning! I love how it is such a great balance of cute plus elegance! The pink is beautiful, and I love how you have used it throughout the entire card. The sparkle is expertly applied, not too much, and in all the right places. And your coloring makes the image come right to life! I love this one!!
