A message from Miss Mouse

Hey, I had time for a just-for-fun project today so I decided to make an atc since that's the current theme at Meljen's DT and Challenges blog. I haven't made that many atcs lately and I had forgotten how fun they are. This is a good thing because I have a bunch to do for a swap I'm in.

For this atc, I started with Meljen's Designs Hickory Dickory Mouse digi printed on white cardstock. I coloured Miss Mouse and her clock with my Prismacolor pencils and used a little OMS to blend. Some tiny black flat back pearls decorated the clock face and added a bit of dimension. The edges of the image piece were inked.  It was then mounted on dark brown cardstock and layered with foam tape.. I reused some packaging from some stickers I had purchased to make the foundation of this card. Some of that packaging is so darn cute and just the right weight, too.A little inking around the edges, a sticker,  and I called this atc done!

Not only did I get to colour a sweet image but creating this atc has put me in the mood to do more which is exactly what I hoped would happen. It's like that chip commercial...bet you can't eat (make) just one :)

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you find time in your day to just play and like Miss Mouse says,  "Relax". I'm off to link up to Meljen's challenge blog.

Life is good; so is art.

That mouse is super cute. I love re-cycling packaging too but it doesn't stop me from buying more paper.
