Hi guys, today I have a simple and fun card for you. A while ago, I won the challenge over at one of my favorite challenge blogs, “Addicted to Stamps and More”. The prize were a bunch of digi stamps from Bugaboo which I could pick myself. One image that immediately jumped out at me was this really cute mouse with his umbrella.
I don’t have a video for you to show your how I colored him, but I used my Copic markers the way that I always do: I colored from dark to light and I tried to leave enough space for highlights. I feel that the coloring on this card worked out extremely well, I’m really happy with the results. For additional interest, I added some white highlights with the gel pen to the water drops.
The circles on the umbrella were colored with a silver Gelly Roll pen and then covered with Glossy Accents, as were the raindrops. I also added some Glossy Accents to the nose of the mouse. Once to glue dried, it not only gave a nice shimmer but also a little bit of dimension to the elements it covered.
The sentiment is from a stamp set by CAS-ual Fridays and I think it just fits perfectly with this cute image. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, you made my day!
I’m sending this card off to the challenge which made it possible: Addicted to Stamps and More, which is currently asking for “Clean and Simple”; Simon Says Stamp and MarkerPop who both have the ever popular “Anything Goes” theme.
