House Mouse #25

This week's House Mouse Challenge has a great sketch by their featured sponsor, 2 Red Bananas, who also offered up a great stamp for this week's prize. I used the Signing a Card image, stamped with Stazon and colored with my Prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil. Cut out the image and mat with round Nestabilities then chalked around image with Pebbles chalks. Green paper and the DP are from My Mind's Eye, all layered up after inking the edges. The ribbon I got from Target's Dollar Spot. I wrote on the card with a regular pencil. I actually do write better than that...remember, this is a mousie. : )


Stamps: House Mouse Signing a Card.
Paper: The Paper Studio, My Mind's Eye.
Ink: Stazon.
Accessories: Ribbon, Pebbles chalks, Dew Drops, Nestabilities.

What a sweet card! I love the image and the colors are my fave...I'm a purple and green fan. Your coloring is fabulous. I feel I'm still learning the ropes with my coloring. I'm working on the challenge right now, but had to come and double check the sketch!

**Thanks for leaving me the ebay site with the What Cancer Cannot Do stamp. I really appreciate your help. I did find it at Cornish Heritage Farms and have already made cards using it. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know where else I could find it. :D

Such a cute card, Nancy! I love your colors and the image is colored perfectly! Our trip is going great, but I am really missing my "toys" at home. I have some images to color with me and might have time tomorrow to do some. Taking lots of photos, too!

This is the only time I can say I like something with a mouse. I went back to some of your other cards with mice and they are all so cute. Love the note and how you wrote on it. I could just hug the little mouse, it's so cute!
