The Good Life

Hello... It has been a long time since I have posted to my blog.  I made this card for a few challenges. One is for the Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT204 over at Splitcoast Stampers - It's a cruise to Tee-heat-tea, Teapot Tuesday Style! Make cards with a nautical theme. tropical scenes, and all those refreshing drinks we will have on our cruise! The second one is  for House Mouse & Friends challenge HMF122 "Liquid Refreshments for Hot Summer Days". The cute House Mouse Designs image is called "Keeping Cool". 

My little House Mouse is relaxing on the beach in Tee-heat-tea - soaking up some lovely, warm sunshine. I sponged on the clouds using soft sky ink on the blue cardstock, next I stamped the palm image three times onto blue cardstock, and coloured in the leaves. Added gold liquid pearls to the trees (coconuts).
I stamped the HM image twice and coloured it with Stampin Up and Tombow markers. Cut out the Mouse and part of the umbrella and the sea shell. Popped these up over the base image. Added the diamond stickles. Plus I added the palm tree in the corner. Glued on the sea shells. Sentiment was stamped onto vellum and coloured. Layered over palm tree panel and sewed edges.

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy Stamping and Creating,
