Birthday Mouse

Sharing a birthday card I made for Send a Smile 4 Kids using a digi from Bugaboo Stamps colored with Copics.  The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts, star paper from Bazzill (Tuesday Morning find!) and a border die from Verve Stamps.  The card layout is OWH sketch #19.

I used my new Misti to stamp the sentiment, and I have to say, it makes all the difference in the world to be able to stamp something multiple times.  The orange paper (and the stamp itself) didn't really take the Stampin' Up Night of Navy ink very well.  The ink beaded up on the stamp and wasn't showing up very well.  After stamping the sentiment three times, I achieved a nice clear image.  Yay!  I believe the Misti will save me a lot on inks since I use different variations of inks to get an image to stamp clearly/completely.  With the Misti I can simply stamp until the image fills itself in.

I'm entering my card in Cards in Envy's challenge It's a Birthday Party! Birthday Cards.
