HM&F - How sweet it is....

Happy Monday everyone.... Over at House Mouse and Friends - Suzy has given us a colour challenge - Neapolitan (chocolate, strawberry and vanilla). This is my take on the challenge.

I coloured this adorable strawberry loving mouse (Mudpie) image with Prisma colour pencil crayons and gamsol . I sponged the clouds with Stampin up soft sky. The strawberries were clear embossed to give them a glossy look. I coloured two extra strawberries (on the left side) and popped them up for more dimension. The sketch I used is from Our Creative Corner.


Stamps: House Mouse - Sleeping with Strawberries HMIR1002, Stampin Up - So Very

Paper: very vanilla, chocolate chip, K&C company - Brenda Walton - Sweet Talk

Ink: stazon timber brown, soft sky, chocolate chip

Accessories: sewing machine, prisma colour pencil crayons and gamsol, blending stumps, brads, piercing tool, cuttlebug, rectangle and plain nestabilities, heat gun, clear embossing powder, pop dots, small circle nestability (for corners)

Please stop over at House Mouse and Friends to check out what the other DT members have come up with to inspire you. Happy Stamping.
