IC146 borrow a Cup of Smiles


I made this card for todays Inspiration Challenge. You were to view these mondo dishes , and get your inspiration from them.
My inspiration came from the colors. I used blue,brown, and white, also a little yellow, and green.
The stamp I used is from Pink Poison stamps, It is a preview of the new upcoming stamps for oct 1st release.
On my card I stamped the cup/mouse in choc chip, and then watercolored the mouse brown. I watercolored the cup with bashful blue, and the flower is so saffron, with a little bit of ruby red. The leaves are certainly celery. The brown flower is dyed with choc chip re-inker, and so is the brown ribbon. i also dyed the blue ribbon with bashful blue. The background is embossed with the cb and I used bashful blue on the backside of the folder. The oval was dipped in a mix of beads. If you are wondering how I get my cards in envelopes/ I used bigger envelopes than my cards, and I always face the front of my cards to the front of the envelope! :) Thanks for looking!!!!!
Stamps can be found here~Pink Poison click on the catolog to view Oct 1st releases.
