House Mouse "Sketch"




This week's challenge at House Mouse & Friends is this sketch. I'd been wanting to use this image which I received LAST Easter, and hadn't had a chance to color, but now, it's Easter again! :-) I wanted to do something a bit different on this card, using pink/purle and lime green/yellow combination, with a hint of blue... like all spring-like colors esp. for Easter, to use them in one card. So, I created the background like you can see it on the pic. First, I chose the paper to match with one of the egg color and layered it under that colored egg side, and purple cs to match with the other side, the purple/pinkish colored egg. I attached 2 eggs, stamped & trimmed, in blue & purple, to match the image, and punched the grass from lime green cs, adhered with dimentional foams. Then I attached two yellow flowers with the similar color & design, above the house mouse colored image. I also found these clear yellow buttons with glitters in them, at Joanns', and had been wanting to use. So I attached those in the center of the flowers. I tied the ribbon, using the same colors of Baker's Twine in yellow/white, and lime green/white.The sentiment is an old Darcie's stamp. I used the Sakura Glaze clear pen for the mice's eyes, chocolate smear on their faces & the chocolate where the mice bit, to show a bit of "wet" looks. I like this pen cuz of the more flexibility due to being a PEN, compared with Glossy accent, and it won't give too much dimention, but just right :-) Of course, I luv my glossy accent for different usage but for the ones I used on this card, I like the way this pen worked :-) I'm mailing this to my friend for this Easter...:-)
