I wanted to do something fun and whimsical today. I have always loved these House of Mouse images very well indeed and alas my own have been gathering dust for some years! I was trying to get a feel of Ana Wohlfart's work. I very much admire her style and skill with layers and colors. Now this doesn't even come close to hers, but I'm hoping that if I keep looking and trying, eventually some of her skill will rub off.

stamps: House of Mouse, Riveting, Itty Bitty Background

CS : Rose Red, Regal Rose, Caramel, Old Olive, Celery dp, Shimmer White CS

Ink : Old Olive, Garden Green, Creamy Caramel, Rose Red, Regal Rose

Acc : Ribbon, AI glitter in Hot Lips, silver brads, scallop trimmer, Prismas and Gamsol, Cuttlebug stitch folder and wildflower folder

The card is very straight forward. Each layer is sponged with its own color, and the caramel and regal rose of the mouse mat is stamped with Itty Bitty. The mouse is colored with Prisma pencils and Gamsol, sections are straight coloring with no blending. The Rose Red strip is embossed with wildflower folder, and the Olive square has the stitch embossing. thanks alot and enjoy the rest of your day!
