i was commissioned to make a card for someone who wanted bright, cute, cheerful and with mice; it was so much fun to colour these penny black mice images from the ‘homemade’ set. as usual, i coloured with distress ink pads and twinkling H2Os and i masked the sentiment to stamp half on the first panel and the other half on the second; i added a blank white panel to the the final section of the s-fold as requested for a hand written note after i took this photo. i lightly sponged the image panels with distress ink and used patterned paper from pink pettitcoat; i was inspired by sally’s adorable lemonade card.
i’d like to submit this card to these challenges:
crafty ribbons challenge – three of something
a little bit crafty – summer sun ends august 30
animal friends #5 – summer ends august 31
crafting when we can – lemon and lime ends august 17

As usual, delightful DI coloring. This one is so sparling & bright, and I adore that PB image. Liked the way you split up the sentiment…brilliant. I’m sure your requester loved this card as much as I did. TFS

Linda, thanks so much for sending me the tips in your comment. I am using either #90 Canson or 140Strathmore & Canson. The 140 seems too ‘thick’ when I use on a card, so I bought some 90. I’m going to look for some Fabriano paper, as I’ve read that is a good quality. Haven’t seen it locally though. Thanks again for taking time to offer some good suggestions. Much appreciated.
Das ist eine ganz zauberhafte Karte geworden
Danke das Du bei Animal Friends mit machst
