So glad I found a friend like you
It's been quite a while since I played with any house mouse images. Since the house mouse challenge blog are having a hop I decided to join in. I don't really have the time as school starts tomorrow, but you need to be able to relax too, right? Housework can wait. I just thought my hobbycorner would be shining from cleaning. Instead it's just sparkling (from glitter unfortunately :D)
The theme for the house mouse challenge was "new beginnings". I wanted to do something clever and thought of this image I've never used before. It's called "finding friendship" and I wanted to play with that theme.
The image is coloured mostly with oilpencils and rubbed with a kind of alcohol. I think it's called gamsol in the US. I only coloured the shade and looking glass with tea green promarker and inked the edges with weathered wood distress ink.. The rest of the card is made with scraps of two different patterned papers (although they look almost the same), an embossed cardstock strip and some trims. I also added two sizes of pale blue pearls in the corners. The text is handwritten as I'm practicing to be happy with my own handwriting for scrapbook layouts.
Challeges for this card:
Cute card thursday - monochromatic
Friday sketchers - sketch
House mouse - new beginnings
Stampin for the weekend - new and blue
