Hello and welcome

Today it’s our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday! This week I’m hosting the Challenge – Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist.

I brought out one of my MFT Stamp sets for today’s card – It’s a Mice Time to Celebrate.

After stamping and copic colouring this fun little guy, I added a mask as well as masking the edge of the panel. It was then time to stencil the background using Distress Ink and SSS Falling Snow stencil. I lightly sponged close to the edges to give the look of a frame.

A front panel had MFT – Musical Notes background stamp and white heat embossed.

After using tape to mask off 2 stripes down the LHS of the panel, it was blended with blue Distress Ink.

This panel was then added tot he cad front and the smaller mouse panel was attached with raised tape.

The sentiment is from the same MFT stamp set and white heat embossed and added to the front.

To finish I added some Wink of Stella to the hat and  Glossy Accents to the glasses.

I had a great time playing with so many different techniques.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

I hope your enjoying some crafty time.

Stay safe and have a good day

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
