Dreamweaver Thursday with Mousey Mischief

You may have wondered just how we'd incorporate "Mousey Mischief" week in with Dreamweaver Thursday. Simple! With fun Dreamweaver backgrounds that go with anything!

The House Mouse Designs® "Potted Mouse" was colored and shaded on a panel of Mixed Media White cardstock, and from there, this card took a mixed media turn...

The card base was placed in a "spray box" (I love to use the boxes from Costco with three sides to protect my workspace from overspray), and Memories Mists in Mango Lemonade were sprayed through the Hexagons stencil randomly over the surface. 

A panel of Core'dinations Chalk Core cardstock was run through my Big Shot Pro with the Dreamweaver Black-eyed Susans stencil. I used a sanding block over the embossed surface, and swiped Tangerine Memento ink over the surface before tearing and distressing the edges and adhering this panel to the card.

The hexagons stencil was inked directly with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, and with the mouse panel placed face down on top (along with the rubber embossing mat and two clear plates), was run through the machine to transfer the inked design and emboss it as well. More ink was smudged around the edges, along with a bit of distressing before adding this to the card.

Finally, a scrap of coarse linen was inked with Memento shades, stamped with the sentiment from the Perfectly Clear Thoughtful Wishes set, and adhered loosely to the card, before adding a couple of twine-tied buttons.

How about some more "Mousey Mischief" from the team?
