Christmas: Poinsettia mouse


This card was created on 28th November; day 28 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

I made this card with my mum in mind. I’m always on the lookout for cute critters when it comes to creating cards for her, and Diane Carubia’s mice are just adorable.


I decided to have a play with my Copic airbrush kit to create the sky background instead of the usual Distress ink blending. The mouse was coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut out, leaving the ground in place. I stamped the sentiment across the sun and a scattering of silver snowflakes over the whole card. The mouse was mounted on the background using some thin foam tape and the whole panel was then added to a card base.
