Christmas Card - Wet Stencil - House Mouse Design

I used Stampin Up! watercolor crayons with my Dreamweaver stencil to create this Wet Stencil background.  This is one of my favorite TJ technique. 



The house mouse image is colored with copics.  It's hard to see but I used Crystal Effects on the ornaments to give them a little sparkle.

I used spellbinders to cut the image and the sentiment label.  Sentiment is from Stampin Up!

I am entering this into the House Mouse Designs Challenge...join me...

They are hard to see but I embossed some snowflakes behin the snowman.  TFL

Back to Back - Mos Digital Pencil

I did this card for my one of my childhood best friends.  She is so sweet and I hope she has a wonderful birthday celebration.

Coincidentally, Mo's digital pencil challenge is called "Celebration", so it will be entered into that challenge.

Onto the card details, the technique called "Back to Back" from this months TJ newsletter.  I used distress inks (tumbled glass, broken china & black soot). 

I colored Mo's image with copics.  I colored the ribbon with a yellow copic marker.  The celebrate tag is from spellbinders which I cut, embossed and airbrushed ...
