Merry Mice

Hi and welcome to Merry Monday - the place that helps you get organised for Christmas all year long!  This week, Debbie has challenged us to use transportation on our cards.




I rifled through my Christmas stamps looking for something with a vehicle on it and came up with this mouse-powered vehicle:





This is a gorgeous Penny Black image which I colored with Copics.  The image is quite large, so my card is 5 1/2" square.  I am not an expert, or even intermediate, Copic colorer so I've signed up for the latest Online Card Class, which is on Copic coloring!  I can't wait!  In the meantime, here's a close up of my beginner coloring - and I confess I used the color image on the back of the stamp pack for this!


Thanks so much for visiting.  If you haven't already checked out the rest of the inspiration from the design team, be sure to head on over to Merry Monday and give this fun challenge a go.

Products used:

Stamps:  Jolly Follies (Penny Black), Christmas (SSS), Lovely as a Tree (SU)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Forest Moss Distress Ink
Cardstock:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, Xpress-it
Accessories:  Copic markers, sequins, Merry Christmas die (SSS)

Cheers
Karren

Darling PB image. Your coloring was very good and I used the colored image on the front of the stamp all the time. Good job.
