I started out by heat embossing the image from the Penny Black set Holly Jolly on Bristol Vellum paper then colored with my Zig Clean Color Markers. The mouse on the right side is a separate image from the set, it's also been heat embossed on a different paper, colored and fussy cut, then attached to the card with dimensional tape. I brushed some Wink of Stella glitter over parts of the image to make it sparkle. I wanted to add some ink to the background so I stamped the image on a sticky note and cut it out - this didn't take long as I didn't need it to be perfect. Placed the sticky masks over my image and then I was able to ink and add the stencil designs. I used one of the patterns from Penny Black's Oscillations stencil on the carpet part of the image and Echo Park's Stripes Stencil for a wall design. The sentiments from the sets Season's Gifts and Holiday Snippets were stamped directly onto the card front. The card base is Neenah Linen textured 80lb card stock.
