Ready to Fly! - House Mouse and Friends with Prismacolour pencils

Flying through the streets! If the broom fits... You're ready to fly!

This card features a House Mouse and Friends stamp accented for Halloween with a brad, glow-in-the-dark embossing, and Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sentiments. The little mousie was coloured with Prismacolour pencils.

This card is my inspiration for the House Mouse and Friends challenge blog as a guest designer. The challenge starting 2 October has the optional theme of Halloween. Come join us!

Putting It Together

I love House Mouse! I got this cutie as one of the stamps I got as the prize from winning the challenge in August. I fell in love with him and hope you like him, too.

I stamped him with light brown on Bristol paper to do a "no lines" technique.

I coloured the mousie with Prismacolour pencils, keeping track of the pencils used on a scrap of paper.

I fussy cut the mouse.

I dry fit the mouse on a fun paper I had gotten in a Halloween kit last year. I'm not sure of the maker, I got it as a loose sheet.

I used foam mounting tape on the back of the mouse to give him dimension.

I added a sentiment embossed with glow-in-the dark and an enameled brad.

Inside, I added a detail from the patterned paper scrap and Kimmie sets. The two sentiments "If the broom fits..." and "You're ready to fly" are perfectly match to this cute mouse stamp.
