Just Dropping By.......

Morning everyone.  Have spent the last couple of days trying to catch up with stuff and am getting there now.  I still have all my cards to load up from last weekend so until I've done that I thought I'd continue showing you the cards I did for The Glitter Pot's Spring Spectacular weekend.

This card was made from the Penny Black Make A Wish clear stamp set - the one that I ended up having to have myself!  I truly LOVE this set!  The mice were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured using Copic markers.  The background paper is by Basic Grey and is from the Kioshi collection which is just gorgeous!  The swirls and wording came from my Funky Flourishes stamp sheet.  All of which can be purchased from The Glitter Pot.

Here's a closer look at the mice panel for you. The mice on the blackberry stalk is one stamp and then the mice floating down - one with a daisy head; the other with a dandelion head are separate stamps from the stamp sheet, which being clear allowed me to stamp them exactly where I wanted them. The soft background around the mice was also done using Copic markers and I do have a class coming up at The Glitter Pot showing you how to do this on Saturday 10th July.  In the morning we will be using this particular stamp sheet and I will show you how to colour these cute little mice and add a soft dotty  background to them (like this one) using the Copic markers and in the afternoon we will be using Copics again along with the Milton and Milly characters from Wild Rose Studio. Click here for more details.

Getting back to this card I also used the Clear Copic Spica pen on the dandelion heads but I don't think I got the light right for you to see the wonderful shimmer!

Good morning Kay, this is a beautiful card and stamp set, I love how you've coloured the image and the placing of the floating mice is brilliant. I'm addicted to the Kioshi papers, just gorgeous:)
Still haven't got my clear spica pen yet, I can feel a visit to the Craft Barn coming on LOL xx

Hi Kay, just having a late lunch, so thought I'd pop by. What a real lovely card. The way you've built up the image is inspiring. And as 'mustavcoffee' has said the Kioshi BG papers are gorgeous.

Hugs, Pauline x

Mustavcoffee - I'm sure you'll like the Clear Spica when you finally succumb to it!!

Louise - finally catching up with stuff now and am not quite so exhausted! Thanks for asking!
