Cartoon mouse (Cinderella style) on 6" square card - Day 216 of my 366 day challenge

Cartoon mouse (Cinderella style) on 6" square card - 
Day 216 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Today's challenge is using a hand coloured digistamp of a Cinderella style mouse that I hand coloured using a mix of alcohol markers and pencils.

Cartoon mouse (Cinderella style) on 6" square card



  • I first of all took the Cinderella style mouse digistamp from the "Fairy Tales" CD rom (I think) and took it into Serif;s Craft Artist Professional 2 and resized it to about 3" high and printed it off onto good quality digital stamping card/paper.

  • I then coloured it in using a variety of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers - mainly grey, pink, darker pink and blue, trying to blend them in to give him a "life like" feel. I also added some of their matching colours in their pencils (not their Aquablendable pencils) to add a bit more depth. Once I was fairly happy with it, I attached it to some black cardstock and then cut round it to leave a very small border.

  • Next, I cut out a "Picot" edged oval shape in Pink "Adorable Scorable" (never agreed with things have to be pink for girls and blue for boys) and attached the mouse topper on to it.  I then die cut the fancy edged oval in white cardstock. 

  • Using some "Silver" mirror card (from Hunkydory or Kanban), I embossed a 6" square using the XCut Small Polka Dot embossing folder and trimmed it down so it left a narrow border when stuck to the front of the card. I glued the silver background first and then added the Fancy edged oval frame using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue and finally added the topper on to both using foam pads.

  • Finally, I added some "Rhubarb Crumble" Nuvo Acrylic drops to the corners and parts of the oval frame - as the Mirror card is shiny, it sometimes means that the drops flatten out a bit so you need to be careful with them.
And there you are....a really lovely card  Don't forget you can visit my website The Handmade Crafts Shop to see what I have for sale.
