Hi all, this is a card created for a contest in the House Mouse & Friends group
at the paper craft planet.
The actual dimensions of the finished card is 6"x 6".
Stamps Used: House Mouse = Party Mouse (Monica), Stampin Up = Petite Patterns, Stampendous = Marble Texture Cube.
Ink Used: Memories Black, Stampin Up = Baja Breeze, Taken With Teal, and Pale Plum.
Paper Used: Pale Plum, Whisper White, and Black. Provo Craft Bitty Scrap Pad Heritage Post.
Accessories Used: Stampin Up Ticket Corner Punch, and a Tim Holtz Ruler, Pergamono Hole punch and pad, Ranger Super Fine Embossing Detail Powder, Great Impressions Glitter in Sparkling Ice, Fiskars Glue Pen, Sponge, Veramark Pen, Tombow pens in 800 & 723, and Markers markers in Deco Pink, and Blush Pink on the hat, then Cinnamon Toast on the body of Monica. Paper Flowers and Silver Brads. I hope that's all. Other than that, I used a hospital glove on my right hand while I was sponging.
Seen Here, after I stamped Monica on whisper white with Memories Black ink. I'm still waiting for my Hybrid Black Noir ink to show up. I hear it doesn't smear as bad. I colored Monica's body with a Marvy Marker in Cinnamon Toast.
Then I used Marvy Markers in Blush Pink and Deco Pink to color the hat.
I went back over the hat with Deco pink to blend in the Blush Pink. I also punched the
corners with a Stampin Up Ticket Corner Punch.
Then I colored The rest of her body with Tombow Markers. I used 800 on her tail, feet, ears and tommy, and then 723 on her nose and a little on her tommy too. Unfortunately, that Memories ink isn't the greatest with Alcohol based Markers. I can't wait for my Hybrid ink to show up. Grrrrrrr. Did I say that already. LOL.
Then went over the image with a Versamark Pen and embossed it with super fine embossing powder and heat set.
Then masked off the bottom of the image with a post-it note and sponged
bajabreeze on the top. Medical gloves really saves hand from being inked to death.
Then I ink the top-right corner with Taken With Teal.
Then I removed the post-it mask and sponged Pale Plum on the bottom and stamped the Stampendous Marble Texture Cube with Pale Plum, on the right and upper corner. Then I used a paper towel to wipe the extra ink off of Monica.
Then used a Fiskars Glue Pen on the hat and sprinkled glitter over the hat, shook off extra,
and heat set.
This is everything before assembly. I use Scotch Double stick tape to tape everything together. All cut-outs were not really measured, just eyeballed and cut out and stuck on.
After assembly, I used the Timholtz ruler and a Pergamano punch with the black punch pad, to punch the holes on the corners. It's still hard for me to punch them in a straight line, even with a ruler. hehe.
Then I added the paper flowers and silver brad to the corners.
That's it. I hope you enjoyed my first picture slide show.
Let me know if you prefer all of the photo steps along the way, or just the finished card.
