Freshly Sketch Mouse
Time has been running out for me this week and suddenly realised I didn't have a Penny Black card for today so I knew I would have to make a quick card.
Then I saw the sketch on Freshly Made Sketches and knew this Penny Black Gifts for You mousey was coloured. For some reason I remembered this Cuttlebug folder and how I like to dot the flower centres and the dots with a gel pen.
I was thinking to use the stripy embossing folder but I'm glad that I didn't cos I stamped the sentiment at the finish.
Pretty bit of lace and ribbon and wasn't sure on the punched flowers and it just wouldn't be right if the camera didn't misbehave somewhere and this time the pearls are deeper pink, how it works out to do something so random is beyond me.
I had a successful day cards are done although they are bit clean for me and the name and date is now stitched on the secret project which I shall wash tomorrow and when its nearly dry, I'll iron the cross-stitch on soft towel to help it pop.
