Burnished Velvet, House Mouse, Copics

I created this adorable card with the New House Mouse Flower Bed Stamp, Copics, Doily Lace deep edge Marth Stewart Punch, & Burnished Velvet Technique using Ritz Glitter & Be Creative Tape

Using the Doily Lace Martha Punch, I punched a Mask from the Be Creative Tape using the cover that you peel off to expose the sticky. (Be Careful NOT to touch any of the sticky part of the tape)

I used the 1 1/2" Tape. I also cut a very thin strip for a border

I laid my Doily Lace mask and the thin strip back on the sticky part of the tape. Again make sure NOT to touch the tape.... then carefully (I use tweezers) make sure your mask is stuck down well so no glitter can seep under your mask.

Sprinkle your Ritz Glitter then brayer over it to make sure its stuck down well.

When you remove your mask it exposes the other area of sticky. It shows your pattern for your 2nd color. Note: Make sure to do your darkest colors first always with this technique

I added my 2nd color of Moss Green. I removed my single line strip and use the Cool Highlight color which is a beautiful white for the strip The Photo does not do this justice. Ritz is a beautiful micro fine glitter and the Burnished Velvet is gorgeous with three colors.

These are the copic colors I used for the House Mouse coloring

I used the rectangle scalloped Nestabilities and  Eclipse Tape to tape down before running thru the Cuttlebug. This way I get my image cut in the center perfectly.

I did not have the perfect matching ribbon so I used white ribbon and my YG67 and colored my own. 
I used the Bow Easy to make my bow.

Then using my Copics I colored the Making Memories Deco Pins

After I colored them with my Copics
