Well I said on a previous post I love Lili of the Valley. Well I have a second love and that is House Mouse! When I saw this months theme of Sunny Days on the House Mouse & Friends Challenge Blog, I thought I would join in and have a go. I have had this un-inked stamp set that I brought from Joanna Sheen some time and sadly it is now retired from the online store. I was a bit put off by the amount of colouring involved on this stamp, but this challenge spurred me on to give it a go. I coloured the image to match the backing papers using Promarkers, Copics and Prisma Colour Pencils. I used glossy accents on the ice cubes as it was crying out for it and I used my clear Wink of Stella pen over the top of the glossy accents, which gave a gentle shimmer (This doesn't show up in the photo). I decided to stamp the sentiment straight onto the backing paper as an after thought, always a scary moment that it might go horribly wrong, luckily it turned out fine this time! I added some stitching, ribbon and gems to embellish. Finally I couldn't resist colouring the little single mouse and so I added that onto the card as well.
