This card is my entry for House Mouse Monday Challenge #21. The stipulations for this challenge were that we were to use a House Mouse image (of course) and three colours, night of navy, cameo coral, old olive or as close to as possible.
Off I went searching through my now large collection of House Mouse stamps to find an image that was suitable to use. Found!!! Squeaky Clean. Now I wanted to use Stazon Timber Brown on very vanilla to take away the starkness, (mind you in the photo it looks white) but though I knew I had bought a Timber Brown stazon, I had to find the jolly thing. Half an hour later and with some more stash put away, I had my ink pad.
One thing I learnt while colouring this image was that a little blue goes a looooonnnnngggg way.
For my card I used an adaption of Mojo Monday Week 32 card sketch. Instead of the embellishment where it is on the sketch, I moved my greeting to the lower right hand side so it didn't cover my coloured picture. To give the card a bit of texture I cuttlebug embossed my strip under my House Mouse image and added kindyglitz to the bubbles.
