Mouse on Daisy

Some other friends of ours recently had a baby girl - adding to the two boys they already have. I was excited to make this card for them:

Elizabeth Whisson, Tina Wenke, Mouse on Orange Daisy, copic, baby, handmade card

I also made this card to show an example of my copic colouring for Little Blue Button Stamps - they are currently looking for Copic Colouring Artists - see their post here. They also sell their own stamps - see their store here.

Another photo of my card:

I am entering this card in As You Like It Challenge #15 - Spots or Stripes. I must admit I actually had a hard time choosing, as I like both spots and stripes. But in the end decided that I like spots better and probably use them more often on my cards. I'm not a huge fan of really large spots... but the smaller, more petite ones. I like adding little "spots" (spinkles / pearls / rhinestones) to most of my projects - I think it finishes off the card really nicely. I've incorporated spots into this card on the papers, sprinkles, and the copic colouring of the flowers. I put some copic colourless blender on a microfibre cloth to add "spots" to both the mouse and bird to give them some "texture". I also used AtYou Spica glitter pens to add some more "spots" (with added sparkle) to the flowers on the copic coloured picture.
