A color pop

If you follow my blog, you will know that I am a fan of monochrome images with a pop of color. And this card is just that.

I recently was able to purchase a few House Mouse rubber stamps and this little one is one of them. I stamped the mouse in the middle of a card panel sized at 3.75 x 5 inches. I then masked the upper portion of the mouse so that I could stamp the huge rose she is holding, but that the stem would be visible down her body.
Doing some more masking with the flowers, I stamped 3 roses in the top right and bottom left hand corners and one in the top left and bottom right corners respectively. I then stamped the sentiment to the left of the mouse. All stamping was done in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Strathmore Paint Pad paper and I used my DIY stamp positioning tool to get the placement correct.

I colored the mouse, corner roses and rose leaves with the Cool Grey color family from my Prismacolor colored pencils. Using a bright orange combo, I applied pencil color to the big single rose that the mouse is holding.

I completed the card by matting the colored panel onto black cardstock which I then in turn adhered to a white cardbase.

Strathmore Paint Pad paper
