So today I actually made time to sit down and just play around with all my toys. The plan was, from the beginning, that I might color some and try out the new colors I got the other week. But I found a House Mouse image laying on my desk that i colored a while back that I just need to use somehow. I realized I haven’t made a House Mouse for like months! And of course I had to change that. So i looked through my calendar and found out that my aunt has her birthday next Tuesday so i decided to make this one for her.
She is bit more modern then this card but the image just gives me a feeling of old country kitchen in Italy (for some reason) and i hope she will love it anyway. So I looked through my stash of paper and found these nice papers from Pion Design which inspired me to do the card even more vintage so everything have been distressed with Vintage Photo. I also added a layer of vintage photo over the entire image so it would match better with the colors and have the same warmth to it. The doily is also covered with ink. The inside is made in the same fashion.
The Image is cut out using my new and fabulous rectangle nestabilities, bot the regular and the scallop one. I could only afford the large or the small one when i made that order so I chose the Large one in hope that it would work with the big stamps from House Mouse.. and look they fit perfectly! I couldn’t be happier. The image is as usual colored with copics.
I used this weeks Sketch Saturday Sketch for the layout and I did keep fairly true to it. The sentiments tab is a die from MFT and the sentiment is from Gina K’s Garden Silhouettes. The sentiment is stamped with Memento Rich Cacao.
I used some cream pearls so make the card a bit softer and to give it a more embellished look. Unfortunately I were out of the smaller ones so I used the big size. I still wish that I had the smaller ones but it turned out ok anyway.
