Earlier this week I was trying out a different technique with the little mouse stamp set, Merry Mice in the Holiday catalog (which is retiring). Thought I'd try stamping him and embossing him in white on black - pretty much the chalkboard technique only then I would color over the embossing. Here's what I ended up with:
There is not a lot of color to see on that sweater and ornament - but it was something to give a try. Probably needed a sharpie marker instead. This one is already in the mail so can't change that now - this was a thank you and I added a few gift tags for the recipient to use also.
While I am not thrilled with how the card turned out - I'm tickled with the little tags - this little guy is perfect for a gift tag! I think I can actually get several of these little tags done for Christmas - yeah!!! Just as soon as I get the Christmas cards done! Oh boy. Taking them with me today to sit and work on them while my mom has some minor surgery today. That will help pass the time as we have no idea if this will be quick or take forever - so I'm going prepared either way! Have a great week-end and get out there and get that shopping done!!!! only 17 more days! YIKES!
