My First House-Mouse card

Today I am sharing a simple card made with a House Mouse image and some colouring:

The image was printed onto Strathmore toned gray paper and then coloured with Derwent coloursoft pencils. I discovered that this paper is really nice to colour onto. I mounted it onto some bright yellow craft foam and then onto a grey A2 card base after stamping the sentiment in Memento London fog ink.

I am new to Housemouse designs and am thrilled to have finally discovered them.

I am sharing this at:
Housemouse #320 - Always anything goes
CAS on Friday #184 - Anything but white

For your blog
 Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.
