House mouse

I've recently bought a few sets of house mouse stamps and i simply adore them. I just love colouring them in and here is one of the cards i made from a completed image. I used Aqua-markers to colour them. it took me a while to get used to them but discovered that they dont work so well if the paper is wet you must put them on dry paper and use a wet brush to spread it out.

tatty button

I know its ages since I posted a blog and yet i read several of other peoples. this week I taped several Create & Craft shows that were promoting Tatty Button and while I wasn't particularly keen on  them at first the images really grew on me so I thought i'd buy one (to start off with) and now I think she is a lovely character. It was really easy to stamp and colour so methinks i'll be buying a few more soon.

This image is stamped in black memento and coloured with promarkers. the middle strip is embossed with a Creative Expressions 'daisy' embossing plate. i cut the circles out with Martha Stewarts circle cutting 'gadget' - sooooo easy!
