Tip Toe


Another House Mouse challenge based on a Halloween theme or colors. This challenge was a test for me without having any House Mouse Halloween stamps. But here you see that House Mouse antics abound in the pumpkin patch. My friend, Sizzix, die cut all the pumpkins – but, after putting in the shading with watercolor pencils, it was a layering "nightmare". The background on this 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card was created with a PSX tree stamp and a sponged grey/blue sky compliments of Brilliance Lightning Black and some blue hues from a Big and Juicy pad. Other credits: HM (Santa Rosa), and Family Treasure punch for the bats. I'm a little batty myself after putting this romp together, but batty is fun! Oh, yes, the words are by me.

This is so cute - I love all the layers and little HM's leaping around - it must have taken you ages to do.
Brilliant card.
