Art Impressions Challenge #157 Make Me Smile

Hello!

A new challenge is going up on the Art Impressions blog!! The challenge - Make Me Smile!!! The design team is featuring some amazing new stamps called Big Mouths!! Unfortunately my package with the new releases has made it yet (stay tuned, though i'll show off these stamps next week!!!) so instead of the new stamps i used a super cute stamp that makes ME smile, Spectacular!

I stared by die cutting a stitched oval from some watercolor paper. Then i stamped the adorable mouse with the big classes. I used distress markers to color the mouse, by coloring the marker on a clear block, diluting it with water, then applying the color with a small paint brush.

Next i used some new pattern paper, trimming the sides so it is framed by the white card base. I added the oval with foam tape, then stamped the sentiment below it.

Last i rounded the corners and added some mint enamel dots! I have so many enamel dots i don't even have to worry that i'll not have anything that matches!! (Yes, my name is Dana and i'm an enamel dot hoarder  collector!! hehehehehe!)
