House Mouse Candy Cane
This is another card using the house mouse christmas stamp again with the little hamster and his candy cane, instead of making the candy cane the usual red, green colours i have gone for a gold theme on this card, coloured the images in using pro markers, but toned them down, the mice have been coloured a grey colour and the hamster a ginger type colour (pen used was coral i believe) the candy cane was then coloured white and gold. the image has been edged with gold border peel offs then matted onto a piece of the same cream card as the base card, this mat was then edged with the gold pen touch pen, and mounted using 3d foam pads, on a "wonky" angle to the card base. The sentiment at the bottom is printed onto white paper, then cut using a wave cut, edged with gold pen touch pen, matted onot cream card again edged with gold pen touch pen, and put straight onto the card base. The sentiment reads "way up high on the christmas tree 2 little candy canes winked at me, so i shook that three as hard as i could and down come the candy came hmm hmm good."
