|Background paper by Heidi Grace was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Happy Birthday" embossing folder.|
Here I stamped my image in black Staz on ink and then created a mask for Amanda (that is actually the mouse's name! LOL I didn't name her heehee) using Masking Magic by Therm O Web. This is one of my favorite products because it is so easy to use and provides perfect masking every time!!.
Covering only the mouse with the mask I then inked up my stamp with another of my favorite products - Versamark ink!. I stamped right over the first image only a teensy bit to the left so that some black ink would show through underneath ensuring that the umbrella and confetti were nicely highlighted . Are you hanging in there with me? LOL cuz here comes the SILVER! I then applied silver embossing powder and set it with my heat gun.
Wanting to focus on the silver in the card I applied only a very light amount of coloring to the image using some colored pencils and chalk and attached it to my card.
I love the House Mouse line of stamps! and I enjoy the challenges at the House Mouse & Friends Challenge blog. Please scamper on over and see the many silver and gold creations from these talented folks.
