Umbrella Ride with House Mouse


Hello! Are you enjoying all of the fabulous House Mouse and Friends posts that have been going up this week? What wonderful, happy projects! For full details on the hop, plus the fabulous prizes that are up for grabs, please visit the House Mouse & Friends blog.

Directions:
1. Stamp Umbrella Ride House Mouse with Versafine ink in Onyx Black. Color with Tombow Dual Brush Markers as listed above. Fussy cut. 
2. Die cut Winter Lake cardstock from My Colors with the 4 1/2" x 3" Fitted Frame. Take the Picasso tool and place it near the top of the die cut. Apply a small amount of acrylic paint to your stencil brush, and rub off excess on to a paper towel. In a circular motion, apply the paint to the cloud portion of the stencil to the die cut. Move the tool around the entire die cut to complete the cloud background. 
3. Die cut the 1 1/2" x 1" Fitted Frame in Loveable cardstock. Stamp with sentiment from the Spring Sentiments set and emboss with Detail Black embossing powder. Edge the die cut with Versamark and emboss with Sparkle Blue from the Spring Sparkle Embossing Kit. 
4. For the card base, cut Pollen from Bazzil to 5 1/2" x 8" and fold in half. Tape Quatrefoil stencil to the card base, and with a sponge dauber, apply Dandelion Memento Ink to the outer edges of the card. You don't need to do the center because the large Fitted Frame will be there. Work quicky so that the ink doesn't dry completely, and apply Clear Lemon from the Summer Shine Kit. You do not need to have full coverage.
5. Attach all pieces except for the House Mouse with a flat adhesive. Use foam tape from Tombow to attach the mouse.
