FMS259 Merry Mice and Washi Tape

Yay!  It’s time for another fabulous, clean and inspiring sketch challenge from our fabulous, clean and inspiring Linda Callahan at Freshly Made Sketches!  I needed to create a quick card and I love how washi tape can come to the rescue when needed.  🙂


Did I mention fun?  Because you can add that to the lists to describe both the sketch and my DT friend, Linda.  This was a fun card to make.  The image was colored up quickly and easily with watercolor pencils (no water added). A little Christmas pizzazz was added with gold and red glitters and further enhanced with stamped stars that were heat embossed with red glitter.


A few scattered dots of black, gold and red markers connect the path of scattered stars.  These little Christmas mice are just so adorable!

fms259-lindaI hope you enjoy working with Linda’s sketch as much as I did, and as the Clean Team apparently did, too, because their inspirational cards are gorgeous again this week!  Visit FMS for more inspiration and to play along with us!
