Are you ready for a new House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge? If so, you'll want to head on over to House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog for challenge #111 for the "ALL BLACK AND WHITE ONLY" Challenge.Sounds simple, eh? Well, technically it is but let me tell you how hard it was not to add color to the cute little mousie. Not wanting to buck the rules on my first challenge with the DT I managed to keep my card all black and white, though I admit to using my copic markers just a wee bit on the mouse using cool grey tones.
And...I tried out my brand new-to-me lacey oval die from Cheery Lynn Designs. I've been seeing so many new intriquite die cuts on cards lately and I just had to try one out. It is a bit trickier running these delicate die patterns through the cuttlebug but the end product is lovely, I think.
I used some black Stickles glitter and on top of the stickles used clear Glossy Accents dimensional glaze on the ink bottle for a real life ink jar effect.
Stamps: Stampabilities "Amanda Writes" and Papertrey Inc "hello" sentiment
Ink: Versafine Black and clear embossing powder. Copic Markers
Designer Paper: Making Memories "Sabrina"
Embellishments: Cherry Lynn Designs cutting dye, Prima Flowers, Miscellaneous black buttons and machine stitching
