Wizard Mouse

     Welcome to my second DT post of the day, this one for QKR Stampede where our theme is always "Anything Goes."  My card today uses a precious QKR image, called "Wizard Mouse" and it's all about 'times gone by' when magic and wizards ruled the world.  :-D


     I used ProMarkers to color and shade the image, added gold to the stars and silver to the crystal ball with paint pens, then cut it with a stitched Cottage Cutz die.  You've recently seen both of the dp I used because they were scraps left over from another project which were still lying on my craft desk.

     I printed the sentiment, and used another Cottage Cutz die to cut it.  I had to put the die at the top of the sentiment, and make a cut, then move the die so that I could cut the bottom of sentiment. If you're off searching for a CC die that exact shape, you're not going to find it.  Being able to shift dies to get the size you want is one of the versatilities in using dies.  :-D

     My final touch was hand sewing a sheer, purple bow with a purple pearl.
