Welcome to Challenge #82 sponsored by Cute as a Button and Sasayaki Glitter! This is my first time designing for the 'If you Give a Crafter a Cookie' blog and I couldn't be more excited! I am a definite cookie girl.... it's really the way to my heart! I was so excited to be able to use this image from Sasayaki Glitter. This little guy is so adorable and I had the image stashed for a while! So the inspiration from the cookie image below was a perfect match for this image!
I used a technique recently shared by Kelly Tribout Latevola for Newton's Nook. I just loved how masking the image allowed me to create a background so that the tea cup wasn't floating on the page. I printed the image on my laser jet printer and again on the masking paper. I fussy cut the image out and placed it over the tea cup mouse on my card stock. I then used my distress inks to create a background. Using the same sage ink, I also stamped a similar flower to create the appearance of wall paper. I think I've had this stamp since I was a child! LOL
I added two black lines to attempt at creating a table/edge. I colored in the image with my Spectrum Noir Markers and Sparkle Markers. This tea cup mouse is too adorable!
Thank you for joining us this week at 'If you Give a Crafter a Cookie'!
