Let It Snow Penny Black Mouse

Decided to make another Christmas Card last night to add to my Christmas box. Picked out this really sweet little Penny Black mouse looking skywards with his cosy scarf on.
I stamped him in Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and then coloured him in with my Tombows and a blender pen which I have not used for a very long time. I added a pale blue outline which I've seen many people do on their work. I think it worked quite well and makes the image "pop out" from the paper a little more. I layered the image onto a piece of silver card and then on to a piece of backing paper from K and Co Peppermint Twist Mat Pad which I also used down the opening of the card by cutting a strip with my fiskars cutting Board and a Scalloped blade. I stamped the PSX "Let It Snow" stamp in Versafine Smokey Grey and then used a glue pen to go over the top and added glitter - just to soften it all. I then added a punched foil snowflake, little buttons from my stash and of course more glitter!!!
I'm also working on a Wedding Anniversary card for Drew but haven't finished it yet. I will share when it's done - I think!! It's not going the way I planned ( if you know what I mean) I will have a look at it tonight with fresh eyes and see what I think.
Thanks For Looking

Beautiful Louby, you are so good getting the Christmas cards done and this one is so lovely. Gorgeous stamp and I love your Tombow colouring, the little scarf looks furry, lovely effect and very expert, the outline does make the image pop out and of course it's always good to have loads of glitter for Christmas, perfect!
