Keep Calm & Smell Lavender!

It has been a while since I made a card. Been busy other stuff...

Here's a card I made with another House Mouse stamp which I used for the first time. 

Using the Pink Distress Ink for the first time. Also using the 'Candi' dots for the first time. I used the white dots and coloured them with Promarker in the shade I want. Oh, another 'first time' with the this effect of splitting the picture into segments ;)

Mice climbing among lavenders, isn't that just cute or what?

Stamps: Image (House Mouse Summer Chill Out), Sentiment (May Hughes)
Paper: Scallop White Card, White Card stock
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Pink (Distress)
Promarkers : Saffron, Raw Sienna, Amethyst, Fuchsia, Leaf Green, Blender 
Embellishment: Candi Dots, Ribbon, Glitter Glue, Glossy Accent
Tools: Corner Punch (Siesta)

Sending this sweet lavender smelling mice to :

  5. Hey Ike, oh cool. I am sure you will make something nice too ;)

    Thanks Wenche & Peggysue for visiting!

    Hi Rica, thanks! I thought splitting the image would make it more interesting than plonking it directly on the card. Loving this first House Mouse stamp set I just got. Will collect more ;)

    Special thanks to Lorraine for pointing out my word verification was on. It had always been off and I was so shocked to find it on when I checked just now. No wonder for past 3 blog posts, my comments dwindled drastically. How it suddenly switched on is really beyond me...
