Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - January Midmonth

Hello and Happy Wednesday.

Today I am sharing another creation made for my Crafty Wednesday Challenge  here on my blog. I have moved the linky to the end of this post, so simply scroll down to link up your creation.

 I would love for you to join in if you haven't already and don't forget you can enter up to 3 times. A stamp set by Dylusions (sponsored by me) is this months prize - you can see it HERE in the original challenge post if you'd like to. Otherwise simply scroll down for the linky tool.

As a reminder, for the month of January I set the theme of.....

Sparkle and Shine

so glitter, embossing powders, metals, foil, crystal effects, shimmer papers etc.

 Xpress It Blending Card // Versafine Onyx Ink // Clear Embossing Powder // Copic Markers // 
                       Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass // Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch //

To make my card, I heat embossed the image using versafine onyx ink and clear embossing powder, then colored with copic markers. Normally I would use Memento Tuxedo ink, but my ink pad wasn't very juicy and I couldn't get a good impression with Memento ink. (Time for a replacement, now that I am starting to use my copic markers more often.) I cut a mask for the mouse, then inked up the white background with distress inks. Excited I got to use more of my pattern papers (if you haven't heard yet, I am on a mission this year to use up some of my never ending stash of pattern papers :-) The papers I used on today's card are from a paper stack by DCWV.

Unfortunately I can't link to this cute image and sentiment set, as it was a free stamp set from Hero Arts that came as a "thank you" with the cute December My Monthly Hero kit (now sold out). Speaking of Hero Arts, the  January My Monthly Hero kit was just release and is now available for purchase. Mine is on the way and I will be sure to make and share something as soon as it get here :)
Below is what this month's kit looks like.
MMH December

The kit is available HERE for $34.99. This kit includes everything seen above: stamps and matching dies, some papers and vellum envelopes, plus the circle letter seals and a red laquer pen.
