Harvest Mouse and Pretty Boxes
I know it's a bit out of season, but I just fancied using this stamp. The sketch is lovely and quite simple so I tried to keep my card quite simple too with a country look.
stamp: harvest mouse by personal impressions
medium:promarkers and flex marker around the image
gingham card: pinflair
daisies are made using 2 different size woodware punches ,2 small circle punches and the leaves are floral punches.
sentiment: craftwork cards.
willows sketchie challengee: followed the sketch
hotshot crafts: flowers
I adore miniature things,I have 2 dolls houses and love all the little furniture. I also love little boxes,so I thought I'd dig out my sizzix bigz die,carry all boxes,and make a few. My son Sam has bagged the white one for valentines,to fill with a few chocolate truffles.
The white box is made with card featuring dry embossed leaves (hope you can see by the pics.
The checked box is made using a sheet of my minds eye double sided 12x12 called quiet contrary,a bargain at hobby craft 10p a sheet.They had loads of 12x12 papers there one day ,all 10p ,I bought about 50.
The butterflies are from a framelit ,stamp and die cut set,as mentioned in a previous post.
The flower is a die namics die with a pearl center.
I'm entering the white box in the following challenge
sentimental Sunday: dry embossing
still very cold here,but the sun is shining so off for a nice dog walk. My 2 poodles are dying to go,as usual ,and are running up and down the stairs. I wouldn't mind but they are both 11 and still act like pups.
Enjoy your day.janex
