Cute Mouse with Flower Card

I made the main element on this card using a really cute mouse with flower digital stamp by Meljen Designs. I colored it with markers and colored pencils. I used some fruit punch stickles on the cheeks and some glossy accents on the flower and stem. I dry embossed the layer under the mouse with my fiskars scrapboss using elements from the rectangle/wave and rectangle/classic shape boss stencils. I added the two layers to some DCWV paper as the card base. I added three pearls to the upper right side of the card.

Fancy Hello Kitty

Here is a card I made using the Hello Kitty and Paper Doll Dress-Up cartridges. I did alot of altering to this one. I cut the hair, flower decoration in the hair and the dress from the paper doll dress-up cartridge. I used cricut design studio to size everything on hello kitty. I colored the dress and flower decoration(which I had cut in white) with spiced marmalade distress ink. I used a fine tip black pen and a white gel pen to add detail to the dress and the hair decoration. I also used a orange pen with a fine tip on the dress too. I added pearls to the hair decoration and one on the dress. I used some liquid pearls on the dress too.

I made the backround paper myself. I used a white base and inked with broken china and tumbled glass distress inks. I stamped over the top with two different flower stamps, also using the same colored distress inks. Then I ran it through my sizzix texture boutique and embossed using the swirls cuttlebug folder.
