A Mousie!



I think I will blame Leigh for this card LOL. She has renewed my love for House Mouse stamps and gave me this stamp for Christmas!! At the same time, it is fun to again use my nice collection of Prismacolor Pencils with stumps and solvent. As I have not coloured this way for a long time, I have not done very well here. Practice makes perfect they say!


I thought the Cuttlebug embossing folder I used went perfectly with the theme! I did enjoy making this card - thank you Leigh - there will be more!


Stamps: Stampa Rosa Signing a Card and Stampin' Up! Lots of Thoughts
Ink: Archival Black, Prismacolor pencils
Card: Stampin' Up! Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery, unknown brown

Jean I think the coloring turned out great. The mouse looks really furry to me. I don't have any HM stamps so I might have to go do some looking.

I love this mouse image. You did a great job coloring it and I like how you stamped the sentiment on the "card". I also like your choice of embossing folders.
