To create this card. I started out by stamping both on the card and on a Post-It. I took the stamped image on the Post-It to create a mask. I also took some copy paper and cut it down to A2 card size. After that I took the copy paper to create a mask by die cutting a circle out. I then used the Post-It note mask to cover up the mice on the cardstock. And then put the copy paper mask over the cardstock. I then brought out my makeup brush and Lemonade ink. Once the ink blending was done. I then uncovered the mice and colored them with my markers. After that I stamped the sentiment onto some white cardstock and then cut it out. I then put it over some black cardstock and hand cut that out to create the banner backing. Then I took some red cardstock scrap paper and die cut a heart.

But before I put the card together. I dropped some liquid right above the coloring. Thankfully, it didn't ruin my coloring job. But it did leave a mark on the card. So I used the same circle die that I used for the mask to cut out the blended area. And then I glued that down onto my new card. Then I followed that up by attaching the heart die and the sentiment piece.

Also, I am taking part in The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge.
