My Favorite Things - Color Challenge 165

We have another Color Challenge #165 for you at My Favorite Things and I hope you will play along for a chance to win a $50 gift voucher!  Here is my inspiration card and find below it the colour palette you'll be working with.

To create my card I first grabbed a panel of white cardstock and I used Washi tape to tape off a line.   I used Jalapeño Popper and Prickly Pear Premium Dye Inks to ink blend above the washi line.  I splattered the ink with water and blotted up to create some interest.  I carefully removed the washi tape and I centred and stamped the sentiment from Mice Day below the line using my Misti.

I used the A2 Stitched Rectangles STAX to trim down this panel and give it the faux stitched edge.

On Copic friendly cardstock the characters I needed from Mice Day were stamped and I used Copic markers to colour everything using the limited colour palette.   I used the low number W Copics to delicately colour the mice since I wanted them to be white mice so all they needed was some subtle shadow detail but of course a little blush on the cheeks and in the ears was necessary.

I used the coordinating Die-namics to die cut my images.  Points were highlighted with a white gel pen and then they were backed with dimensional foam tape and applied to the background.

To finish I just adhered 4 sparkling clear sequins in two different sizes.   The decorative panel was then adhered directly to an A2 panel of Jalapeño Popper Prestige Cardstock which nicely framed the scene with a beautiful deep green.  This in turn was attached to a sturdy white cardstock base.   Card complete!

I hope you choose to join in for a chance to win!  Happy crafting and the best of luck to you!
