House Mouse LOVE

Shopping our Stash has a challenge out there that is all about "crazy for coloring".   I am crazy for coloring . . . but most of my coloring (90%) is with House Mouse images.  I am obsessed with them. 

How obsessed?

A friend and I buy and collect stamps all year . . . talking and comparing notes, praying we will not double-buy.

Once a year, we get together, bring our stamps . . . we stamp onto watercolor paper with Versafine, emboss with clear embossing powder, and we do about three images for each of us . . . or is it two.  I don't know, but my collection of images to color just grows and grows.  We have a scheduled date coming up to stamp away . . . just one week from Thanksgiving!  We also have containers with pre-stamped images stored . . . and ready to color.

So I pulled one for this challenge.  

This time around I colored using distress inks . . . sometimes I use watercolors or water color markers.  I like to switch it up.  What you can't see in the photo is the shimmer . . . I ran over those flowers with a shimmer liquid. 

So yep . . . I'm crazy, and crazy for coloring.

  1. I'm sorry for this late comment, I've been nursing a nasty cold.
    But I adore your card, the House Mouse siblings are my most favorite little critters, they're always doing something sweet, clever, mischievous, cute or totally surprising.
    Love your adorable card, it shows just exactly what I meant about this little mousies.
    Thank you for sharing with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope you play again soon.
