Silly Christmas Mice

I love House Mouse and Friends stamps and have a LARGE inventory. Sadly I don’t get to play with them that often. I need to find techniques to use them other than full out coloring. As much I as love to color, most of the HM stamps are large and detailed. I can spend hours on coloring before I even think about putting the image on a card! Thankfully there are a few challenges out there that encourage me to use my old supplies. I’ve had this stamp for a few years and even colored the image LAST Christmas, it’s about time I put it on a card. I used digital word art from TLC Creations for the inside verse.

  1. Great HM image & coloring. I love HM too and agree on the coloring. One technique that I like to use with them is the spotlight technique - very effective and little coloring!
