House Mouse New Leaf


I've dug out my House Mouse stamps and inked up a NBUS that has waited
far too long for some love.

I had fun watercoloring this little guy and the leaves falling around him.

I don't have many House Mouse stamps, but I need to use the ones I have more.

I always smile when I see them.

This was stamped with Archival Black ink and colored with Distress Markers smooshed
on my craft sheet and picked up with my Aqua Painter.

The background was done wet on wet with some diluted re-inker.

I added a few splatters too, because you know how those falling leaves
stir up the dust!  Especially when you play in them.

I'm going to enter over at House-Mouse and Friends
ANYTHING GOES with the Option of

I went with the option.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

I've not seen this House Mouse stamp before and he is quite the cutey. Although I haven't paid attention to HM in a long time and now I have to wonder why. I love your water colored background!

Funny how we don't like 'real' mice but love House Mouse Mice. Love the choice of card stock colour which matches those lovely free falling leaves. Of course that mouse had so much fun. Nice smoochy background too Bonnie.

Cute, cute, CUTE card Bonnie! I love House Mouse cards and have a few (well ok, maybe more than a few!) too, but like you they sit mostly in a NBUS pile! I didn't even know there was a challenge for House Mouse stamps...definitely going to have to check that out! House Mouse cards always make me smile too, and yours is no exception!! :0)
