Peace - House Mouse and Friends, Distress ink watercolouring, single layer card

Decorating for the season is tiring! Wishing you the Joy and the Peace of the season.

This single layer card features a House Mouse and Friends image with Distress ink and Finetec watercolouring.

Putting It Together

This is my last week as a guest designer for the House Mouse and Friends challenge.

I decided to make single layer card so I created a card base with watercolour card stock and stamped in brown.

I used Distress ink to watercolour the image using waterbrushes. I used Finetec metallic for the gold ball.

Inside, I decided to stencil a detail with brown on gold.

I also stamped a sentiment on the front with dark brown. 

Inside, the gold and Ground Espresso is a nice detail. I left the inside otherwise blank for a personal sentiment.
