FS112, 0CCC, Love is - a romantic evening gazing at the stars together

Congratulation's Michelle (aka JustPaintingAround) on being this weeks featured stamper on Splitcoast Stampers... Love your gallery...
I combined the featured stamper challenge #FS112 and used the colour challenge from Our Creative Corner - bashful blue, not quite navy and more mustard.
I chose to case this beautiful card of Michelle's. I love the cute House Mouse image - Together under the Stars and the Zindorf technique she used.
For the featured stamper challenge you are to change at least two things - I changed the background stamp, the shape of the card, colours, added ribbon, brads, sewing and used three window tag punches instead of one.
Main image was stamped on glossy white card stock in stazon jet black. I coloured the leaves, tails and faces with Stampin up markers (blush blossom and old olive), I water coloured the mice and moon.. used basic grey ink. Used versamark pen on stamped image and clear embossed. Masked the sky section and sponged more mustard on ground. Masked ground and sponged on bashful blue, then sponged on not quite navy leaving a lighter section under the moon. Added stars with white gel pen. Matted with bashful blue, not quite navy and more mustard. Main card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. Stamped Inspired by Nature leaves onto bashful blue card stock with bashful blue ink. Shadow stamped Not quite navy leaves over the bashful blue leaves. Next I stamped over the leaves with Sanded backgrounder in old olive. Inked edges with NQN. Sewed around edges. Tied on the Blue felt ribbon (purchased at Michael's for $1.00). Punched out three tags with SU window punch, used crop o dile to punch hole in tag, attached gold jump ring. Added the light blue brads. Popped up main image and bottom panel...

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping
