Twinchie Chris Mouse

Chris Mouse by Sherry West
Snowflake Strings background

I stamped Chris Mouse onto a square of white card and then onto a Twinchie.  I masked both images before colouring the background with blue distress ink.
I removed the masks and then coloured the images by watercolouring with Izink pens and highlighting direct with the pens.
On the background blue square, once dry I stamped with Snowflake Strings and white ink.
On the Twinchie I covered with embossing ink and 3 layers of Amazing Glaze thick embossing powder.
The white layer is snowflake strings stamped and embossed in white onto striped vellum.
