HM Umbrella Fun


Don't these mice have all the fun?  Go to housemouse-challenge to see what they're up to.  The option this time is WATER - even more fun!  

I watched youtube videos on how to use laminators to foil (including Jennifer McGuire) followed all the instructions, tried different brands of foil, but still couldn't get a good result.  This is the best one using versamark ink through a stencil, EP and foil.  It looks distressed which I really like.

I like the cool blues with a pop of contrast colour.  The umbrella is double thick, the sentiment is triple thick.  The mice & umbrella are on foam tape.  Dots of stickles on the tops of some waves.

House Mouse Stamp:  House Mouse

Rain stencil: Dylusions

Waves die: uniquelyCreative

Waves EF: unbranded

Umbrella stamp: Magazine freebie

Sentiment: unknown

Also: Copics, foil, stickles

I love it Carol, the effect you got is brilliant. I have tried foil on lots of things but it never really goes to plan, I end up saying its 'chippy', 'distressed look'
