Simply a mouse in spectacles.

Hi everybody,

Jill here and this week I've got a super simple and, hopefully, sweet card to share...

Using Mama Elephant's adorable Page Huggers set.

This set is originally designed to make little book marks, but the critters (you get four different cuties) are just so beyond amazing looking, they work in any way you want them too.  The faces on know when a set just melts your heart to look at....this does that to me, it turns my insides to mush!

I started by stamping out my little mouse in a light grey ink to make the whole scene a lot softer than using a harsh black, and added this sweet heart balloon from Paper Smooches Hullabaloo set.  I coloured everything, including my background, using Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens with water to create a soft water colour effect.  I LOVE my Zigs, yes, they're a little pricey, but they are just so wonderful and easy to work with.  They're pretty much my 'go-to' colouring tool nowadays.

You get a load of little accessories in the Page Huggers set so I thought I would add a pair of spectacles to my little pal and added a coat of Glossy Accents to the lenses and to my balloon.
My sentiment is from Mama Elephant's Woodland Gifts and is stamped out in a grey ink, but a few shades darker than my critter to allow it to stand out.
I added a few flicks and splashes across my background for a little added interest and added a string to my balloon for my mouse to hold.  I then cut my panel using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles, and mounted the whole thing onto a pale grey notecard.

I really hope you like it, as always, everything I used is linked below.
See you next week.
