These are the last two mice that I said I would show you.
The white mouse is actually mouse atempt No 5.
I had given up trying to colour a brown mouse
using distress markers and water so in desperation
got out my copic markers and coloured a white mouse.
Not overally impressed with my effort but she did
warrant a card to pop her onto so here it is.
Flower paper is a freebie from Making Cards Mar 2016.
I fussy cut some of the flowers out separately and moulded
into shape on the doily. Spotted paper is another freebie by
Hunkydory and the pink love paper Making cards Feb 2016.
Pink raffia and gems from my stash.
Now this last one was disaster No 4.
I had used a brown distress marker on her and I think
she went on a very long holiday with no sun block!!
She was burnt to a cinder. I put her to one side and turned
to colouring No 5 above.
Now by this time I had retrieved Nos 1 and 2 from
the bin and pieced them back together again
so I turned my attention back to this little
burnt to a cinder offering for another go.
Sorry I forgot to take a photo of her before I started but needless to say
she wasn't feeling very photogenic.
I know I thought , I will try lifting off the brown with
water and a brush so I set to work. Now here is the interesting
thing as I lifted off the brown distress ink bit by bit I found not
a paler brown mouse but a well, to put it kindly a
decidedly purple one!
(See what happens when you don't use sun tan cream!!)
Anyways, after lying down in a dark room for a bit(me that is)
her colour had settled down along with the pilling of the backing card
and you know what I rather like my purple mouse.
Who says a mouse has to be brown/white /grey.
So I sorted through my papers and came up with the following card.
I edged round the image with a silver gel pen . and used my scalloped edge dies.
