Sweet Wishes

at last a quiet day! and a chance to get out my Copic pens and indulge in a little colour therapy. I treated myself to a couple of the cute LOTV mice stamps and together with pieces of freebie magazine papers I've put this card together.

The floral embellishment is a mix of Marianne diecuts with touches of sparkle gems and glitter for the icing sugar. The green card is a textured piece of Coredinations in my stash, and hopefully the ribbon isn't too pink to tie it all together.

I've coloured the mice with E30 and E31 plus a touch of pink R20. The jam is R20, 21 and 22 while the cake and icing sugar is E50, 51 and 53. The icing sugar box is E000, E40 and E81 plus YG11 - I tend to use the pens a little like paint and blend as I go, as long as they are nice and juicy that is. I wanted to bring a green into the picture so used it for the jam jar along with the clear blender to make it paler in the middle of the pot. My shadows are warm greys for the bottom and cool greys at the top around the box and sieve.

Not sure if there is a challenge out in blog land that this one would fit. I've not been able to check back too many days as the connections are pretty poor here - but hopefully I can get around to visit some of my followers in the next couple of days.

I found a challenge to enter - Everybody Art has an anything goes theme.

  2. Hi Annie
    Oh I know what you mean about a quiet day! ;) This is so gorgeous, I adore these lil' mice and I love the flowers too :)

  3. The ribbon really pulls the colours of those flowers & leaves plus the jam jar together beautifully & I love the softeness of your mice with the background paper's colours. The distressing around the sentiment & image is lovely & soft too. I too look forward to keeping in touch during 2012 & I do hope that it proves a much better year for you.
    Much love
