House Mouse for Merry Monday

Hello.

I'm coming in at the last minute for Merry Monday again.
I didn't think I'd make it at all.


The Merry Monday Challenge this week is hosted by Deanne

This stencil was a NBUS.  So glad to use those NBUS!

I used a Clarity Brush to stencil with Crumb Cake ink.

The House Mouse was stamped on watercolor paper waiting to be colored.


This little mouse stamp was in my NBUS box also.  I colored him up
with Copics and added some Flower Soft to his cap.

I stenciled a row of chevrons and popped him on top.

Whew!  Didn't think I was going to get them done this week.

Is it me or are the weeks going by faster?


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Aw, I just love these little meecies. You did great with the F/S too, looks so fluffy on his little hat. That stuff just messes with my nerves! The green chevron stencil looks bold and bright behind the sweet mouse. Wasn't sure if #1 posted was YOUR card or an inspiration, but I love it too! TFS & Hugs (yes, these weeks are speeding by!)
