Happy MiceDay

I have created todays card with one of the Whiff of Joy stamps, I believe this one is called Henry Celebrating Mouse.

I have stamped the image onto white card and coloured it in with my Derwent Intense watercolouring pencils, then used my damp brush to work out the colours, this I left to dry and then cut it out ready to mount onto my card.

The base card is a A3 light brown card folded in half and cut to 7"x6.50"size, and Ive then mounted on top of this a smaller square of light brown card. I then cut two pieces of patterned backing paper into triangles and pasted them onto a piece of darker coloured brown shinny card and finally onto the base card.

Again on top of this I have cut a further two pieces of the same card and mounted these on top of one another and finally I have cut one of the Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit design papers and stuck this on top. I then positioned my mouse which I have mounted with foam tape onto this.

I printed a greeting onto semi-gloss photo paper and mounted this below the mouse and finished of the card with two of the Papermania Petals and two tiny button mice and one of the cat.
