I first have to say that I love the stamps I used here. Love love love them. I feel in love with the mice when I saw them..and my little mind went wild with the "scenes" I could create..you know how I love a good scene right ?? LOL
Pretty darn cute huh?
Doesn't that mama mouse look like she is saying "What ARE you doing"??? HA! LOVE it. ( OK..confession time..I love mice. I am probably one of the few women on the planet that don't freak out at them.( I grew up in the country btw) and I always wanted my own..you know Cinderella had them and she was the lucky right?? So when I saw these mice..I knew I wanted to make a little kitchen type wall hanging out of it..child hood memories I suppose.
Ok first up , I used this little mousy ( I call her the "mama mouse :), then I used this sassy little thing here, then I used this fantastic jar and this bunch of dried branches, that I turned into either flowers or a bunch of herbs..
Ok first up..I stamped everything on water color paper using a mixture of inks. For the jar I used SU! Certain Celery and Marina mist( tapped one then the other to blend them), for the mice I used Versafine sepia ink ( I wanted them kinda soft..and black doesn't usually translate to soft), for the flowers/herbs I used SU Old Olive and Certain Celery..and Real red for the flowers/berries.
I laid in a base color with Derwent Graphtint Pencils, then went back in with Derwent water color pencils.. I thought about making this kinda bright..but in true fairytale style..I left it kinda muted and soft..the way mice in dresses are supposed to be ;)
here is a close up for ya...
