House Mouse Challenge - Lace it Up!


Here is my card for the House Mouse Challenge this week where the theme is 'Lace it Up'! This is my very first House Mouse card so I was very excited colouring him in this morning (the smallest of things sometimes get me very excited!)
I coloured him with Pro Markers, I have a little tip for you, Brilliance Ink doesn't bleed with Pro Markers! So you can just scribble at your pleasure without any worry (Versafine and Stazon both bleed!) I backed my image onto Stampin' Up patterned paper (thanks Kylie!) and hand stitched around the image. I finally added a flower, some punched leaves and last bit not least, I stitched on my Fancy Pants piece of ribbon lace.
Hope you like!

Love Becky xx

Aww, a cute card. I've just ordered some Promarkers, hoping they'll be here today. A new ink pad Memento is supposed to be good to use with them so have ordered one to try as well.
