Mice treats

    This weeks Christmas card is a very simple card. I didn't realise just how few stamps I have that feature Christmas food, but I did eventually find something. Who could resist Housemouse?
    I have stamped on watercolour paper with Archival Ink Coffee, then used watercolour pencils to colour the image. Maxwell, Monty and Amanda are really excited about their sweets on the tree.
    Each sweet has been covered with Glossy Accents to make it shine and each bow has been stamped again and cut out so it stands out.
    The edge was cut with a pair of deckle edge scissors and then dabbed along a gold inkpad.
The greeting is die cut with a Spellbinder die and again dabbed with gold ink along the edge. Both the image and the greeting have been mounted using foam pads to give a little dimension.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Sweet treats & holiday goodies
CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Festive food and drink
