Oh, I love our Feminine challenges, don't you? It's such fun to figure out what to make and to try new things. After all, cards don't have to be frilly or full of flowers to be feminine. They can be clean and simple, like my card:
First let me say that I am madly in love with the sweet House Mouse images. I am amazed at the detail in Ellen Jareckie's little mice. For this card I used the Strawberry Wish stamp which is a 2015 release. I loved the image so much that I didn't want any clutter to take away from it. Colouring sweet little "Mudpie" and that lovely strawberry was pure pleasure. I used my watercolour pencils and AquaPainter. To finish, I added just a bit of shadow around the bottom using my Smoky Slate ink and AquaPainter.
For my sentiment I wanted something simple but feminine. The beautiful script in the sentiment from the Happy Little Stampers Dandelion Wishes stamp set was perfect and so I stamped it in black. I mounted the image onto a narrow black matte and then onto a base of the Heavy Whisper White. And I love it!
