Sweet Dreams

For this adorable House Mouse Card I combined four challenges from Splitcoast Stampers.
Sketch challenge #SC237, Limited Supply #LSC189 - use your School colours or Wedding colours and also use clips, photo turns or staples - I chose my wedding colours - red, white and grey, Ways to Use it #WT227 - Seeing Double - I used two identical photo turns and brads and this weeks Inspiration challenge #IC189 - Tracey Porter's website.
I scanned in this adorable House Mouse image "Morning Kick Start" into my computer and printed it out onto white card stock and onto designer paper (the images are a little bigger than the original stamp size). Coloured the mouse with prisma colour pencil crayons and gamsol. Paper pieced the mug and mouse over base image. Doodled in the lines. Stamped on the flower and painted with white acrylic paint. Drew in the red lines and center on the flower. Sponged edges. Matted image with basic grey and sewed edges.
Happy stamping
