Hello Mousie fans! I haven’t made a House Mouse card in such a long time! There’s a new HM challenge blog on the block too, run by my Sparkles boss, the lovely Shaz, so I thought it’s about time to stop procrastinating and get back into the craft room again!
Shaz has a simple theme for their first challenge of Anything Goes, and the lovely guys and gals at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge want us to use a stamp that hasn’t seen ink before. I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve got a number of HM stamps in that category! So I looked through them and decided to use One Mouse Band and make something happy and Springlike, as it’s nothing like Spring outside yet and I’m definitely not happy about that!
I coloured my image with my Prisma pencils, adding the Inkadinkado sentiment on the side before I started to colour. The papers are also having their first ever outing although I’ve had them for a while. The yellow floral is from Provocraft and the green is from a Melissa Frances 6×6 pack. I used purple gingham ribbon to cover up the join. The three fishtail/pennant strips were cut by hand using two DCWV scraps from the scrapbox and a little piece of the yellow floral. My only embellishment is a few gems in three of the corners, so quite a clean and simple card for my first foray back into HM.
I based the card on the current sketch over at Sketch Saturday too.
