Mouse on a Daisy

Almost forgot all about this little guy from Stampavie! Isn't he sweet? When I saw those little puffball flowers, I immediately thought of using Flower Soft for them. But I only have white, so I HAD to try to color it. How? With reinkers! I simply took a piece of cling wrap, scooped a bit onto it, added a couple of drops of reinkers, smooshed it around and let it dry a bit before gluing it on. Dried pretty quickly though. And it colored beautifully. So now I know I don't hav eto buy every color of Flower Soft! I don't have the room for it anyway.

The papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Nutmeg collection. I love the colors! And actually, believe it or not I colored almost the whole image with Copics. I've been collecting some colors that seem to be 'missing' from my vast collection of colored pencils. I'm not fond of the flesh tones in colored pencil, so I started getting some in Copic markers. Then certain blue greens and pale aqua's weren't very good, so I added more Copics, LOL. Before I knew it I had enough to actually color an entire image. I'm still undecided about them, though, I don't think I'll be replacing my colored pencils any time soon.

Oh, and I made this card for the Stampavie design team call. Try, try again! Wish me luck!

Thanks for looking!
