Just Hangin' Around


Today's card is for the House Mouse Challenge HMFMC#203. The challenge this week is to use the following Bingo grid.

                                        

I took the vertical line right down the center and used the colors to make my card. I began with a piece of water color paper, adding orange, yellow and green inks, then sprayed overall with water and let the colors run. I colored the mousie's sock with Copics, added yellow mini brads and some gumball green cardstock for the base and mat. Everything was cut with Lil Inker stitched rectangle dies. I'm leaving this one without a sentiment until I have a use for the card. "Hang in there" would be a good one for someone recovering from surgery maybe?

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you're doing!

Carol, I love the background paper you made. Gorgeous colors all put together. That image is so cute and it could be used for several different reasons. I like your idea for a post-surgery patient. Enjoy your day.

Am loving this background. Great results from the technique you used, and very autumnal. Perfect for this little mouse peeking out of his cute sock! And c'mon down. We'll enjoy the trees and coffee as much as you'd like. TFS - Hugs, have a great weekend.
