These are the last two cards I needed to complete for the House Mouse Merry Go Round swap I am hosting. Participants could send any House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image. Each of the other participants made a card with the image, the the cards were returned to the person who originally sent the image in.
The image on this firs card was sent by Barbara and is called Bear of an Appetite. I also used the sketch that Barbara is challenging us with on the Scrap and Paper Corner PaperCrafts message board. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits. The papers are all from My Mind's Eye. I added buttons/twine and brads for embellishments.
The image above, Bearied in Paperwork, was sent by Traci. This was definitely the most difficult image for me to work with in the whole swap, but I am pretty pleased with how the card turned out. Again, the image was colored with Prismas. The sentiment "Are we having fun yet?" was printed on the computer. I cut it out with my Nesties and used the Labels 1 Nestie as the mat. I added a spiral clip with some ribbon. The papers are all from a Kay and Co. scrap pack that I got ages ago and has just been sitting in my closet. I don't know why. There are some cool papers in there.
Thanks for stopping by!
