New Year Mouse


Colourful and fun, this is a party card.  The background is made using the shaving foam-food colouring technique.  The shaving foam leaves the paper feeling smooth and creamy.  It's lots of fun and you get quite a few 'prints' from each foamy tray, even though they do get paler and paler.

Image: House Mouse/Stampendous

Embossed Sentiment stamp: magazine freebie

Also: Copics, Kindy Glitz, metallic stars, washi tape, Glossy Accents.

This is fabulous Carol. I have never tried using food colouring with the shaving foam (have used re-inkers though). I like that there is quite a bit of the white cardstock showing too. Perfect background for the image and theme of the card.
