My daughter says if I see a mouse image I will buy it. So her birthday card had to have a mouse on it, didn't it? I hope she likes it.
I don't often make DL cards but as soon as I saw this stamp I thought DL. It is from the Autumn set of Brambly Hedge stamps from Crafter's Companion UK. I coloured it using Promarkers but used a little of the Spectrum Noir pencils on the mouse's clothes. I also used glossy accents on her eye and the blackberries.
I didn't want to use patterned paper as I thought that would detract from the image. I therefore framed the image with core'dinations cardstock, drawing and cutting the frames by hand and making the yellow aperture slightly smaller than the orange. I used black peel offs to edge the orange aperture. I attached the image and frames together and wrapped black ribbon round the right hand side before attaching all three layers to the base cream card.
Using Tattered Lace dies I cut the twirled leaves and words from mirri card. I coloured two Color Me Crazy flowers using Promarkers and layered these together using a card candi for the centre. I also attached three card candi to the ribbon.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Penny Black and More - use autumn colours
Our Creative Corner - picture inspiration
Animal Friends - golden autumn
Bearly Mine - autumnal colours
As You Like It - favourite season (autumn because it is the most colourful and both my children were born in autumn)
Sweet Stampin' - the great outdoors
Delicious Doodles - the colour of autumn
Creative Moments - anything goes/fall colours
Crafty Ribbons - birthday
Crafter's Companion - autumn
