House Mouse Challenge #25



This was a great sketch to follow but I had trouble finding a mousie stamp to suit the circle image as I don't have all that many HM stamps. Here you only see part of the whole stamp which is one I have had for years and love. It is called Do Re Mi made by Stampa Rosa. I have placed my brads horizontally so have not entirely stuck to the sketch but hope it passes anyway.

I really need to buy some more Nesties - circle ones - for this one I used the Coluzzle for the inner circle and a Marvy punch for the scalloped circle. The embossed SU Handsome Hunter card is embossed with CB Forest Branches and the DSP is the SU Certainly Celery paper.

It is so much fun colouring in these images - practice makes perfect they say. I have a way to go yet but it is still fun! I am extremely jealous of two certain people right now, who I know have or soon will have a full set of the Prisma pencils all nicely kept side by side in a tin. Noooo good on you Leigh and Karen!

This card was made for the Monday House Mouse challenge which is extremely popular each week now. The Design Team are so talented and make gorgeous cards as examples for us!

Gorgeous colours - and love the criss crossed ribbon and way you've used the oval punch - gorgeous as always - even without a full set of Prismas!

I love this card Jean. I like the way you've taken part of the stamp image to make the card. Great colours.

Karen said...

Just love the layout Jean! I have never ever made a card with criss crossed ribbon like that - but will definitely have to give it a go!

Oh and your colouring is lovely too:)
