House Mouse Monday


Hi everyone, a card today for the House Mouse challenge of distressing. I've used the cute teapot house mouse stamp again and coloured it with copic markers this time. The papers are BasicGrey Kioshi and I've used dot embossed green and pink card for the other layers, the pink is distressed with scissors at the edges and all the layers are edged with walnut stain distress ink and some are stickled too. To decorate I've used white flowers highlighted with stickles, white swiss dots ribbon, green gems and a pink sparkle gel pen. I used a previous sketch from Mojo Monday for the layout. Hope you all had a good weekend. TFL.

So sweet. I'm not a big fan of house mouse but I have to say they are growing on me. Ordered my first one, and waiting for it to arrive. Pretty papers and I love your colouring on the tea pot!
