Another Mother's Day Card

Evening everyone,

I hope you are all cosy and warm inside this evening - couldn't believe about some people being trapped in their cars for 12 hours - must have been awful.

This evening I am going to share the Mother's Day card that I made for my Mum.

For this card I again used the Spots and Stripes Pastel papers from DoCrafts and another one of the filigree papers from the Vintage Notes range from DoCrafts which I cut into a circle. The other bits and pieces are from my stash. 

The stamp is a lovely little Country Companions mouse from DoCrafts. As I had used pastel colours I thought it would be a girl mouse and that I would give her some nice clothes to wear! I stamped the image onto some white card, then I stamped the t-shirt part of the image onto the pink stripe card and the wellies onto spotty card. I then coloured in her head and belly using copics: E35, E57, E59 (browns) E51, E53 (creams) and R20 for her ear and nose. Finally I cut out all the individual parts and stuck them on another stamped image so that they all fit together.

I'm pleased with how it turned out and my mum liked it too. I even gave her a lesson on colouring the mouse during the afternoon on Sunday!
