House Mouse Challenge #52 Year-in-Review



Leigh and Debbie, you inspired me to make a House Mouse card today - I always love colouring in these little mousies!!! I have taken on the HM Challenge - this week we could pick a challenge from any week of the past year so the ones I chose were Seasons and songs/lyrics. Here is the link to this week's challenge and there are some prizes up for offer too!

I have no idea what the name of this image is as I acquired it in a swap so if anyone can tell me the name of it, I might buy the stamp as I love it. Luckily, whoever stamped it out did it in an ink that I could use my Copics on so I was very happy!

I wanted to use bigger snowflakes on it and was totally frustrated as I spent time searching through boxes for some charms I have - somewhere!! Leigh sent me some sheets of beautiful glitter paper so I punched out some small snowflakes - maybe they look a bit odd?

The image is coloured with Copic Markers, sponged around the edges and layered on SU Riding Hood Red and then CB embossed white card. To finish, I used SU Dazzling Diamonds for the snow look.

Never fear Leigh, you sure have not lost your HM crown to me! I just enjoyed colouring and ended up with Copics all over the table - I was in heaven!

Tomorrow I will tackle those stencilled penguins again - today's effort was not good!
