Good Morning Ladies, well I hope that the weather near you is better than it is here in Gloucestershire as it looks as if we are in for some heavy rain the sky is black and its now gone dark again. Anyway Ive got some good news for you today Ive been picked to join Donna and Cheryl's The Papershelter Design Team, Im really excited about this as its the first weekly Challenge Team I will be joining and Im sure I will find it a challenge to keep up but I hope that I shall enjoy being part of a very talented team, so do please pop along and see how we get on when we officially start the challenges which will probably be in middle of February.
Todays card is for the House Mouse and Friends Challenge "Embossing" and Ive used this sweet little image of a mouse boating on a fish pond. Ive stamped him onto a piece of white card and coloured him with my copic pens, afterwards Ive cut him out with my Nestabilitie Die Label No.2 and the sentiment is another from the same set of stamps and Ive cut it out with the same die, both have been mounted onto faux mounts where Ive used the same size die and drawn around the outer edge of the die then cut them out by hand.
Now Ive been asked several times about the card I use for my mounts and my embossing, its actually Pearlescent Card its 250gsm, and I buy it from Alexander Paper Supplies if you click on their name you will see all about it. Ive used a paper from the Nitwit Downloads this one has a scroll pattern which reminded me of waves for the first layer, and the second is a leaf pattern and I cut a strip and used one of Martha Stewart border punches down both sides and laid in down slightly to the left, over this I have laid a large square of dark blue pearlescent card which I have put through my cuttlebug with a scroll embossing folder, then around the middle Ive wrapped a dark blue satin ribbon and attached it to the back.
The mounted image was then positioned towards the right and the sentiment at the bottom on the left, to finish of Ive stuck three small fish buttons.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
