House Mouse Challenge #109 Fuzzy & Warm
Well here I am finally posting this card after one week of trying to work on it. I absolutely love HM stamps, but I'm always so afraid I don't do them justice so I take forever to produce a card with them. Anyway my image is titled By The Chimney With Care. I think it is just so darn cute with these little mice sleeping in their stockings by the fire. I colored it with Copics and then fussy cut it out so that I could add some "wallpaper" behind the fireplace. The wallpaper is from an old stack of papers that was in my stash so I can't tell you who it is by, sorry. I "hung" a couple of Christmas swags on the wall which were stickers I found at the dollar store a couple of years ago. I knew when I started this card that I wanted to make this a "window scene", but I had a hard time trying to make the window look "real". I spent hours trying to make siding and shutters, etc, but to no avail. I finally remembered my weathered background stamp and used that. I added a transparant sheet for the window and my final touch was some Flower Soft for snow along the window sill and corners of the window panes. Thank you so much for stopping by, hope to see you again soon.
