Art and Craft

Good Morning all, I missed you all yesterday as I was at the dental hospital. It was my first visit to the new hospital and of course they have given it a new postcode also (I really must get a modern satnav). Anyway I got there and more by luck than judgment ended up in the correct lane for the right turn across the dual carriageway. Phew. I slept when I returned home so that was my day gone. I have now been playing for some time on todays fun card of mice and a bit of washi. I put a bit of tissue paper under part of the small strip of washi so it looks like a bit of material for the mice to sew. Admission time - the extra mouse at the bottom right is a cover up as I had an embellishment there that didn't work out (tried to fiddle and it broke).
The rest of my card is made up from 3 separate stamps, I do love masking and and over stamping when it works , which is quite a task with wooden stamps but very satisfying. Anyway enough waffle, I hope you enjoy and thank you for your lovely comments on my layering card and I will play catch up today.

  5. Hi Flora, what a clever lady, stamping and masking, how I envy you being able to accomplish this. I think I am too heavy handed when trying to stamp but it's on my list of things to achieve when the winter nights come in.

    I just love your mice so happy and full of fun.
