A choir of mice


A little later than usual today. I try to schedule my posts but as I was out yesterday and it was dark by the time I finished my card I decided to wait for daylight and post this morning instead. I have used a great sketch from Kevin at Sketch N Stash. These cute Penny Black mice haven't been used for ages, partly because these images are quite small. However I found that gave me the chance to use larger die cuts so I must stamp up more of my Penny Black images. They have been coloured with Promarkers and I added glossy accents to the lamp and used a Viva Decor pearl pen too. The edges have been coloured with DI Forest Moss. All the papers are bits from last year's Christmas pads. I have used a new Memory Box musical die and a Marianne lamppost die which has been darkened with DI Vintage Photo. The grunge sentiment is from LOTV.  I would like to enter this into animal magic at Penny Black and more and Christmas is coming at The Crafty Pad.. I must get some ironing done and than planing a crafty afternoon.
