Meeces, Mooses and Mices! Oh my! I think the ladies at Bah! Humbug! must have been cleaning the dungeons and encountered some of these cheese-crazy, cute critters! They must have inspired the challenge this week which is all about mice! Well, I know that everything at Humbugger Hall is fun and creative and anything but scary. Also, thanks to my stash of House Mouse stamps, I have some of these awwww-inspiring cuties. Here is my card for this week's challenge:
I like to use non-traditional colors for holiday cards. I actually started with the ribbon for inspiration. When I first looked at it I thought it was burgundy and green, but under the Ott light I realized it is purple and green. Not being much of a purple fan I took on the challenge with my trusty Copics. The tan in the ribbon inspired the use of Kraft cardstock. I haven't placed a sentiment on the card yet but I think I will make a tag to slip under the bow at the top.
Here is a close up of the image. It doesn't show well but I used some Waterfall Stickles for the snow. I usually take three shades to color an area for depth, but the House Mouse images have quite a bit a shading already printed so I used only two shades. The purple is V06 and V09. The green is G82 and G85. The fur on the caps is colored to look more tan than white and I used E81 for that.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you take time to hop over to Bah! Humbug! for inspiration and to play along. You won't regret it!
