Lost a Post - House Mouse Card
Have you ever lost a post? That is if you blog of course. I am not finding this one on my blog. I can remember writing about it and I checked Splitcoast and I did put it there but it sure isn't here! No telling what happened. I checked my drafts too, nothing. Oh well here it is to you for the first time!
The House Mouse stamp of the month swap I am in has a bonus image and this is it. We have until middle of June to make it but I always like to get right on things. Most of the stamps I color lately I haver used my water color crayons. I know in time I will get better at them but for some reason where I think the waterbrush id going to put the color down it doesn't. To me the point is on the item but it turns out not to be and I end up making a messy image. It looks like I am coloring outside the lines! I failed Kindergarten 101, huh? Sooooo not to mess up this one I used chalks. Love them, always have. So much easier to use, no wet mess and no mistakes that you can't erase with a regular white eraser! Woo Hoo! It is also much faster and less fussy so why don't I use chalks more? Good question! I like my water color crayons, they cost an absolute fortune so that motivates me also. Just got to get the hand-eye thing better :)
The colors are from this weeks color challenge, orchid, pumpkin and celery. I used my new Cuttlebug embossing folder called floral fantasy on the celery mat. I also used one of the Cuttlebug dies for the flower, nice thing is you can cut it in three colors and mix and match. The ribbon is a satin ribbon that I received in a grab bag, worked nicely for this! That's about all, hopefully this post won't turn up missing too :)
