House Mouse card!


This is my first House Mouse card. Saw this stamp and thought it was so adorable...actually all the house mouse furry animals are super cute! I just love animals and used to raise rabbits when I was younger...would love to do it again someday. I tried to use a sketch for this but it just wasn't working so I did my own thing and I'm glad I did! I read Claudia's tips on Copics over at Die Cuts R Us and I think it really helped me understand blending...she also includes some other great tips. Now I know it isn't perfect but I do think I am improving! Can you tell I blended two colors of each (green, pink and brown)?? What do you think...pretty good for a beginner?? I even did an outline shading...this was so much fun to color and completely out of my comfort zone...guess that is why they call all these challenges! LOL! I also used my new gold stickles from some candy I won not long ago to dot the satin ribbon and I can't say enough how much I just LOVE stickles!!! Okay now for the challenges and don't forget to let me know what you think about my coloring...or anything else you might like!

Thanks!

hi Stacie, I do see the improvement GF!! your layout is so cute with him...here is a tip for eyes...leave a little white or sometimes just put a little white dot on the eye with a white pen...try it on your next one and see if you like it!!!
