I got my new tattoo done yesterday - it has taken a while to get the money together and design the damn thing, so it is about time it is on my body lol. But boy did some parts hurt - and are still tender now. (I am going to enter this into the notjustcards challenge - I do have the original drawing below).
For the square card I stamped the Tom Mouse - Country Companions - image onto parchment paper and also onto blue/purple tie-die paper. I coloured his nose and ears with watercolour pencils and then cut the head and tummy from the parchment and the top from the patterned papers and layered onto white card. I then added a blue frame over the panel and attached to the base at an angle. Finally I added the 'You're the best' sentiment from my stash.
For the apeture card I backed the aperture with acetate and added sequins to make a shaker base. I used the same papers to paper piece Tom Mouse again, but added extra white to the ear to make it a little less red. The wellies were cut from star printed KRAFT card. I fussy cut the image and then added to the side of the apreture, with a birthday cake topper and a sentiment from my stash.
I would like to add these cards into the following challenges:
twofer card challenge #4 Pets (I kept mice as pets for many years)
