Happy Monday! I am back today with couple cards for you using couple Heffy Doodle sets and a video!!! Yes, I am back to doing videos again!!!
When I saw the Hello Squeekheart set from Heffy Doodle I knew I had to have it! Those little mice are so stinkin' adorable!!! And you got to see the coordinating dies, they have little cut outs for their hands/arms!!!
For my card today I didn't use the dies, as I decided to create a scene using masking. As well I was testing some new watercolor paper (Arteza) and to be honest, I like it, and I like the texture of it, and the weight.
I started by stamping the mice (2nd generation stamping) using pumice stone distress ink, then colored them using my Tombow dual brush pens and Chameleon pencils. I masker them and stamped the cheese. I colored the same way. Created the background using Pumice Stone, Tumbled glass and Evergreen Bough. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment using Versagfine Clair Nocturne and embossing with ultra fine embossing powder.
Watch the video below to see how this card came to be!
And before I go on, I wanted to let you know that this post is part of a blog hop collaboration between My Sweet Petunia and Heffy Doodle! (scroll down for a list of stops along the hop!)
And we have prizes, too!!!
We will choose two lucky commenters from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $50 shopping spree at www.mysweetpetunia.com and a 25 pound shopping spree at Heffydoodle.com - they must leave their comments no later than Central time and winners will be announced on , on the Heffy Doodle and My Sweet Petunia blogs.
For my second card I used the same principle, just different set and colors ( you don't want gray bear holding yellow heart, right?)
