Mouse House

Hi All :)

Thought I would post this card I made a little while ago. The picture isn't too clear unfortunately (got to take some photography lessons one day....) but I think you get the general idea.

I have used watercolour paper here which is so forgiving when colouring with water. The stamp is from Mouse House which I fell in love with a while back. I think this would make a great 'I miss you' card for someone. I found it easier colour the raindrops in blue, then emboss them using a watermark pen and clear ep; makes for colouring the rest of the image easier. The three sections of the stamped image are backed in SU! Old Olive cardstock and the main card with SU! Rose Red.

Personally I think I should have cut the strips a little differently so that the mice were all in the same strip but I guess I will leave that correction for the next card. It was a hard image to ink up and stamp as the image is quite fine, but once done, it was such a lovely image to watercolour. I might just do this one again :)
