For the Love of Animals

Hello and happy Saturday!

We have a new challenge for you at Allsorts and for this week Lolo selected the optional theme of "For the Love of Animals". Hope you can join us for a chance to win a prize or to be selected for the Top 5. Prizes for the April challenges come from Oakwood, AALL and Create, Stamp Addicts, Ruth Hamilton Design, Aldridge Crafts so there will be several winners selected from the weekly challenges!

Here is what I made:

I purchased this Colorado Craft stamp set (So Sweet) a couple of months ago but this is my first time using it. I stamped each mouse with Memento Tuxedo ink and colored with Copic markers. There is a matching die set available but I don't have it so I fussy cut the mice. 
I used Lavinia's Feather Leaf stencil with Spun Sugar Distress ink to create the background. The frames are by Penny Black and sentiments are part of the same Colorado Craft stamp set. I layered the sentiments onto some striped paper for more interest and finished off with some sequins.

Your Mice are such fun Ellie and the stencilled background so soft and subtle so it doesn't detract from those three little fellows.
