Merry Christmouse!

Have you tried this yet?  I saw someone else use this technique and I had to try it. Now I want all my cards to shimmer and shine!

Click on the picture.  It should open to a larger picture and see the sparkle in the coloring.  I stamped with Black StazOn onto watercolor paper and then colored from the lid of my stamp pads using my Clear Wink of Stella Pen.  Oh My Goodness - so beautiful!


The little mice in this set are so adorable.  I'll be coloring more of them with Wink of Stella..


Recipe:
Base - Crumb Cake - 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack - 5 1/4" x 4
Crumb Cake and Island Indigo - 3 5/8" x 2 3/4"

Thank you for looking in today - may you have a Blessed Sunday!  ~ Donna

Cookie Cutter Scarecrow

What do you think of these cute little scarecrows?  I CASEd this idea from Lynn Tague.  I changed up several things, but the pumpkin DSP down the center with the black pattern and the lighter orange pattern is what caught my eye.




Recipe - Crumb Cake or Very Vanilla - 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
Halloween Night Designer Series Paper - 2 1/4" x 5 1/2" and 1 3/4" x 5 1/2"
5/8" Burlap Ribbon
Halloween Night Bakers Twine
In-Color Enamel Shapes (on the Crumb Cake Card)
Rhinestone Basic Jewels - colored with Orange Sharpie (on the Very Vanilla Card)

Colors painted from ink in the lid with my Aqua Painter - Dapper Denim, Crumb Cake
Stampin' Write Markers - Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Real Red




Which do you like better?  The dark background or the lighter background behind the pumpkins.

What are your plans this weekend?  I'll be working and getting ready for our Primary Election on Tuesday.  We'll be having training for 100 plus Troubleshooters who will be assisting our 724 polling place workers on Tuesday.  I enjoy this day seeing people that we've worked with every two years for the past 25 years.  So many changes over the years, yet some of the old-timers are still working and helping us out.

Thank you for looking in today.  Happy Saturday to you all.   ~ Donna
