Lil' Inker Designs New Release: Snow Mouse

Hello! Welcome back to another new release post for Lil' Inker Designs!  Do you like what you've seen so far?  These new stamp sets are super cute!  If you are following along in the blog hop, you should have come here from Teresa Kline's blog

Today I am sharing with you another new stamp set called "Snow Mouse". 

And here is the card I made with this set.

I used sort of a unique technique to color the mouse.  I took a q-tip and dabbed it on my VersaMark and tea dye inks and rubbed it on the mouse.  This gave him a little darker look than the cardstock.  Then, I took my Pebbles Shimmer chalks, which I don't pull out often enough, and colored on top of the image with the chalks.  Putting the ink down first allows the chalk to really stick to it.  The chalk allowed me to shade the mouse easily and gave him lots of sparkle!

For the white snowflakes I used another q-tip and tapped it onto my white ink pad and then colored onto the cardstock with it.  I love how that looks!

The skirt on the bottom of the card is made out of tulle which costs next to nothing!  I gathered it using scor-tape and tucked it under my image.  It adds a fun element.  I also wanted to point out the cute font that these 3 new sets have.  I love it!! So cute and perfect for the sets that they are included in!  This sentiment happens to be my favorite of all of them!  LOVE it!! So cute!!
