Eek!

I'm still creating cards with the mice from MFT It's a Mice Time to Celebrate, sweet set designed by Stacey Yakula...




I started by die cutting a rectangle mask out of copier paper and adhered to the cardstock then stamped the little guy along the bottom edge.  Still keeping the mask in place I blended tumbled glass DOX ink around the edges.




For this card I changed up the mouse colours and gave him brown fur and kept the colours limited to blues with a splash of yellow for the ribbon complete with sparkle.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the little star is from a Lawn Fawn set stamped in blueprint sketch DOX - finished with a few white highlights.
