AALL&Create - Keep Your Balance

Hi folks, today I'm sharing a card I made as a sample for the AALL&Create stand at the recent Creative World Trade Show in Frankfurt using one of the new release Border stamp sets, Balance #167 designed by Olga Heldwein featuring super cute mice precariously balancing on a chunk of cheese.
I trimmed a panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Card to measure 4" x 8", stamped the image in the centre using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and coloured with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. I diluted Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Reinker with water and applied of wash over the background. I added Ranger Opaque Texture Paste through Lotza Dotz Stencil #39 designed by Autour DeMwa. I stamped the image again on to Strathmore Bristol Smooth Card, fussy cut the two larger mice, coloured with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and fixed over the original image using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive.
I added splatters of Black Soot Distress Paint using a Distress Splatter Brush and stamped the sentiments from the stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink on to scraps of Strathmore Bristol Smooth card.
I matted the panel on to a black card blank measuring 4.1/2" x 8.1/2"
I'll be back tomorrow to share another sample, in the meantime, have fun with whatever you are creating.
