The importance of being creative

I believe in the importance of doing something creative. Whatever form creativity takes on for you, be sure to take time to do it in 2019. It is an activity that keeps us balanced.
Today I want to share a House Mouse card with you. I have not colored up one of these sweet images for a very long time. I picked up this stamp in a destash sale some time ago and stamped it onto Canson Bristol Vellum paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This was my first try at coloring on new-to-me Bristol Vellum. I was very happy with the results, however I can only use it for physical stamps as my printer won’t have anything to do with it.

Because of the size and cuteness of this image, I opted to create a clean and simple one-layer card with it. I colored the image with my Prismacolor colored pencils, printed the quote out on my printer and adhered the strip to the card.

I created this card for a friend who I have been encouraging to not neglect her creative pursuit.
General supplies:
Canson Bristol Vellum paper
Stampendous Knit Gift rubber cling stamp
Prismacolor pencils
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
