Sweet friends

Today I have another mousey make to show you.


This image is also from the Very Mice Coloring book and is titled "summer's sweet scent". I have wanted to color this up for a while and since the current House Mouse challenge features multiples, this image of Monica and her furry friend was just perfect.

I printed the image on Canson Mi Tientes paper and colored it using my Prismacolor colored pencils. I had found the plaid patterned paper in my stash and thought it would make the perfect background and so coordinated the pencil colors on the flowers. I also added a few clouds in the background, this was my first attempt at free handing clouds in a background.


I then cut the image out with a stitched oval die and adhered it to the patterned paper which I had, in turn, cut out with a stitched rectangle die.


I added a sweet sentiment from my stash that I had stamped onto yellow cardstock with Vesafine Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Using a stitched circle die, I cut the sentiment out and popped it up with foam tape. I also added a green leaf sprig die cut.

General supplies:
Canson Mi Tientes paper
Reflections 110lb heavyweight cardstock for card base
Patterned paper from stash
Yellow and light green cardstock
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Prismacolor pencils
Stitched rectangle, oval and circle dies
Leaf spring die
Sentiemnt stamp from stash
Clear embossing powder
