I did not intentionally make both cards today with mice... but oh well they are cute and not REAL!
The first card is for Papertake Weekly Card, the theme is hot this week! No really it is "hot". To make your card with a hot theme and/or hot colors.
Well I just got this House Mouse stamps last week, thought it was perfect for summer. IT IS SO HOT! Yesterday was 100, and today they are saying 101! Well this is what I would have liked to do yesterday after running errands yesterday!
These mice are cooling off, after colored with Copic Markers and a little bit of Sakura Glaze Pens, I took my Diamond Glaze and cooled off the ice. Man I hate that it is so hard to photograph things like that cuz it really does look "cool" in person.
I then bordered the image with a narrow hot and pink ribbon. I took scraps of Heidi Grace pattern papers to match the colors in the image, I stacked the papers and gel pen stitched them down. (Yes, my machine and I are still not speaking...) I used some hot pink flowers and buttons to match. I love how it turned out. What do you think? Do they look like they are enjoying some ice on a hot day?
The second card probably also could qualify for the hot theme, but I actually made it with my first Penny Black "image". There is a new challenge blog for Penny Black lovers, take a look if you love these stamps, they are some really great cards there.
Ok, I must tell the truth, I don't actually own a Penny Black stamp, I have a few on order with my LSS, but I so wanted to join in on the blog, and I am sooooo lucky to have great friends like Sue, to send me some images. (Hi Sue already using them!)
This is one of the first images that I fell in love with online. I colored it in with Copics and Spica Glitter Pens, the flower actually glitters quite a bit. I gave their faces a bit of orange glow, as if the sun was coming thru the flower. I used some of my hoarded papers... I found a few sheets of Sassafras Serendipity dp's a while back and I really have to think about using them and make sure I really want to cut them and use them. Do you have any papers like that?
Anyway I just love the scallops on the bottom, and it was my clue as to the colors I was going to use. The two papers are just front and back of the same paper, I used Bazzill bling as a base and to mat the image and the sentiment. I doodled with Sakura Glaze pen. I love the bright colors.
Well please say a prayer for Rosie, my first little girl baby. She has been sick this week, and is not getting any better. I have made myself sick worrying about her. Poor thing has knots all over her and is just plain lethargic and sad. The Doc is coming out this afternoon to take a look. We thought she got into some ants or bees, but it just isn't getting better. I just pray it isn't something more serious.
