You Blow Me Away


Another House Mouse stamp I have had forever and not used.  I am doing quite well with my New Year’s goal of using my neglected stamps.  Of course, it helps when you have no money in the stamping budget, but it really has been fun rediscovering what I already own. 

I colored this image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  I adhered it to the card with foam tape to give it some dimension.  The paper is from My Mind’s Eye Bohemia collection.  The cardstock I used is Terracotta Tile.  I was so excited by how well it matched the paper.  The green strip is Spring Moss and I used an EK Success border punch to punch the border.  The sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile and the satin ribbon is Enchanted Evening.  The little blue bling in the corner is more of my clear cell phone bling colored with a B97 Copic marker. 

I hope everyone has a most enjoyable weekend!  Thanks for stopping by.
