|This is my entry to the ColourQ Card Challenge #283 and |
to the Time Out Challenge #27.
This card got ColourQ Courtier at the challenge.
|Here is a close-up of a mother mouse.|
On Saturday I had time to craft and I went through some challenge blogs to get inspiration. I wanted to colour and I found the colours at ColourQ very very pretty and they fit very well for the idea that I had in mind. A very good friend of mine is expecting her first child and I wanted to make a card for her. Well, I know you shouldn't brake the illusion of the future mothers that the fact of having children isn't always only tickling little toes and looking at them sleeping smilingly.. Unfortunately children grow much faster than we really realize and those snuffling little swagglings aren't so tiny for long and they turn into these "little smiling and adorable perishers". At least one of them lives in our household and does what little mouse is doing in the card - every day! I really thought these two stamps work so very well together to create this scene - so familiar for us.
I stamped images from Purple Onion Designs with light brown ink. I should have chosen a light gray ink but I wasn't thinking at the time. I watercolored the scene with my Inktense Pencils. To finish the card, I adhered a lime card stock underneath and stamped the sentiment with black pigment ink.
I will enter this into these Challenges:
ColourQ Challenge #283 - Basic Black, Going Gray, Kraft, Kiwi Kiss + neutral
Time Out Challenge #27 - CAS with optional twist of plash of one colour - mine is only CAS
