Deck The Halls With Inky Paws Blog Hop

Hello there, I am delighted to be taking part in the Newton's Nook Designs Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop today. You should have arrived here from the fabulous Yoonsun, but if you get lost along the way, I have the full list of participants below.
 
 
For my projects today, I am using the super cute Naughty or Mice stamp set and coordinating dies. I thought I would create some tags for today as I will be in need of some Christmas ones soon! ;)
 

I started off by die cutting three tags from Lana paper (similar to Yupo). I then cut another six from white cardstock. Taking three of them, I die cut snowy hills for my mice to sit on. I took the three tags from Lana paper and added drops of Copic Various Ink (the refills) on to them. I added a little Alcohol Ink Blending Solution and then using a marker spritzer, moved the ink around by pushing air on to them. These pieces were then set aside to dry.
 
 
I took three of the mice from the Naughty or Mice set and stamped these on to white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were then coloured using Copic Markers (colours used listed below). I then die cut them using the coordinating dies. To add interest, I used a white gel pen to add details to the mice, as well as clear Wink of Stella for some added sparkle.
 
 
I took two of the sentiments from the set and stamped these on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. These were then cut in to strips. To assemble the tags, I took the alcohol inked pieces and added these to the white cardstock tags (for extra stability). I then added the snow banks on top with tape runner. The mice and sentiment pieces were added with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Sparkling Clear sequins.

  23. What a great idea to use the same copic colors for the background and the mice! My favorite is the purple one, because it looks just like a purple veined marble. And those long stocking caps crack me up. No tiny hats for our mice! Thanks for sharing your beautiful ideas.

Of course I am love with the inked backgrounds (so pretty), but the whole design of each tag is fabulous, along with the colours that you picked for each one.
