I'm back today with a new card for the new theme at Allsorts challenge. Kath is our host and she picked the theme of: Spots and/or Stripes. Two of my favorite patterns so I incorporated them both on my card. Our wonderful prize this week comes from Craft Stash.
I've been neglecting my Penny Black critter stamps for way too long and decided to ink up this cutie from the Penny Black set Birthday Critters. After the mouse was stamped and heat embossed (I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and Clear Embossing Powder) I masked the edges with washi tape. I also made masks out of post it note to cover up the embossed mouse and balloons before inking up the rectangle using Tumbed Glass Distress Oxide. An old Stampin Up cloud and stars stencil was used to add a an impression of clouds. You don't need a stencil for this, you can simply cut out a cloud shape by hand and use as stencil. The image was colored with various Distress inks (not Oxides) and a Zig Detailer brush. Sentiment is from the Penny Black set Sweet Wishes stamped with Versafine Clair ink. I added the paper strips from my stash and green ribbon. A clear Wink of Stella glitter brush was used to add some sparkles. The bee is from another Penny Black Critter set.
