Lavinia Stamps Dancing Mice Birthday Card

This morning I made a card for a young lady that used to live across the road from us, but moved house recently.  She would be out in the garden in the summer dancing and singing like nobody was listening, she also attends dance school, so I thought these dancing mice would appeal to her.

In the background of this card, I have used the Lavinia Stamps "Dynamic Stencil" with three shades of Archival Inks:  Pink Peony, Violet and Watering Can.

I used the Lavinia Stamps "Hill Mask" with Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink to create the ground that the mice dance upon.

I used two of the Lavinia Stamps mice stamp sets, the "Minnie and Moo" set and the "Tilly and Tango" stamp set, both stamped in Versafine Clair "Monarch" Purple ink.

The sentiment by Hobby Art Ltd, part of their "General Greetings CS016D" is also stamped in Monarch.

Finally, I used a 2B pencil to draw in grass and added some flowers using a pink and a silver gel pen.
