House Mouse float away in bubbles card :o)

Hi folks! It's been an exciting weekend for Joanna Sheen on Create and Craft . It's the launch of her House Mouse unmounted rubber stamp range. Such adorable and cheeky images. I had such fun playing with these. Now when I saw all these lovely snoozy mice I thought of them floating away in bubbles. A bit of a 'far out' design that needs to be seen in the flesh to appreciate as my limited photography skills do not pick up the shimmer of the backing paper at all!
I printed the sky backing sheet onto pearlescent cardstock which gives a beautiful shimmer. I stamped, watercoloured and cut out the images from the 'Poppy' House Mouse stamp set. I had some lovely self adhesive glitter film that I thought would be perfect to encapsulate the sleeping mice and look a little like bubbles. So I used my circle Nestabilities to die cut the film. I added a few clear glimmer and self adhesive gems to the design. I stamped the sentiment, also from the set, with Stazon ink onto the smallest bubble. To continue the 'floaty' theme I finished the card off with a white feather and sheer ribbon bow.
Ciao for now!

Wow, what an imagination Sandra. Fabulous card and great details. (It's such a shame after so much work when the details don't show in the photography isn't it? Although the glitter film is really sparkly)
