So today is my mothers birthday so I have been making a card during the week. Sense she also loves House Mouse I did one with a teal/turquoise feeling to it.
After it’s finished I have to admit it’s probably more my taste with the dark contrasts but I think she will like it anyway. The photo is a bit off, my camera-battery was out so it’s taken with my Iphone.
All the edges of the paper and of the image have been distressed with Evergreen Bough. The cupcake-paper have been paperpieced with the same teal paper as I use in the background, but it looks a lot darker due to all the shading I did on it. All the papers are from Basic Gray’s Hello Luscious collection. The image have been colored with Copics but I forgot to write them down but The mice is cool gray and warm gray, the frosting is E40-E43 and the skin is my usual mice combination of E13, E11 and E51 (or 21).
As embellishments i have used the Jumbo snowflake from My Favorite things. I have been dying to use it (got it as a Christmasgift) and I just love the look of it. The tull-looking layer is something I got from my friend Marie. It was in an kind of beige colors and looked an awful like stockings. I colored it with some black ink and I like how it turned out but if you touch it it will give of color, which explain all the smudges all over the card. The sentiment is written in my handwriting and I bothers me a lot but it’s handmade and my mom have to love all I do (fortunate for me).
The inside follow the outside a bit but is keep very clean due to the fact that I’ll have to write inside what her birthday gift is.
