Spread a little Happiness.....

Hello,

Yay! It's Friday and the weekend is nearly here. Hope you are all well and have had a fabulous week! Today I have a card to share with you using the totally adorable Ladybug and Friends Birthday Mouse.


I have stamped my image with Versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper. I have used distress ink pads to colour. The edges have been edged with walnut stain and I have used pink chalk to colour my background. I have made an easel card using the circle scallops from nestablities.


The stickles I have added are Star Dust and Silver Ice. I have sprayed the flowers with Iridescent Gold glimmer mist. The leaves are Martha Stewart punched.


I wish you all a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for your visit!

love

inks used
black soot, weathered wood, tattered rose, stormy sky, victorian velvet
