It's the fifth week of January and so the theme for our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge is "Anything Goes". What could be better than using the brand new House-Mouse Design, "Sweet Workout"! It's a huge stamp but, oh, was it ever fun colouring it and bringing it to life!
I love the detail in this image, don't you? I decided to use my Faber-Castell colour pencils and Gamsol for this. I find layering the colour and blending it with the Gamsol and my little Blending Tortillons really added dimension to the images. After colouring the adorable little Mudpie Mouse and the tasty looking fruit candies, I added a soft grey to the floor and a soft blue to the wall.
The Poppy Parade cardstock came closest in colour to those yummy looking candies and so I used that as my matte. Of course I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment using the same colour of ink. My base for the card is the Heavy Whisper White cardstock.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
