Today's color challenge on SCS was Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue and So Saffron. These were perfect colors for me to use with this sweet House Mouse image for the Monday HM challenge #32. The HM challenge was to use the theme of sweet.... it could be a sweet image, the word sweet... or anything else that had to do with "sweet". I used this cute Stampabilities image of the mice popping corn over the birthday candles. I thought it was sweet in itself, but just in case (LOL) I added a "sweet" sentiment from Studio G.
These colors are soooo pretty together! I used my SU! Delicate Dots DP. I thought the So Saffron pattern almost looked like popped corn!
My image is stamped with Archival Jet Black and then colored with a combination of Prisma Pencils, blended with goo gone, and SU! markers, colored wet on wet with a paint brush. The most difficult part was that this image is smaller than many of my HM stamps so the coloring was a bit harder to see!!! (I really do need new glasses badly...lol)
My accesories are pretty simple... bashful blue and so saffron ribbons, tied with a silver cord, and clear glitter added with Stardust clear glitter gel pen. This card is going in the mail right away. I got behind trying to make Easter cards and almost let an important birthday slip by!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you enjoy the visit and come back again soon!
