Summer fun

 
A close up:



Is this mouse not just adorable?  I colored him up for two fun challenges.  He (she) is Mouse with the Drink from Gerda Steiner Designs monthly progressive challenge and I used the colors for Repeat Impressions Color Challenge.   I also kept it CAS for the  new challenge blog  CWS: Challenge #2: CAS.

For my background I inked my stamp with pink and green watercolor markers, spritzed with water and stamped with my Misti.  Then I inked up with Versa Mark ink and stamped the image again and embossed with clear embossing powder to add some texture.  I used Glossy Accents on the ice cubes and straw.  I hope this little mouse puts a smile on your face.

Exactly the kind of mouse I like (the cute kind, not the fer real kind!) Love those big ears with the cute smiling face. Adore that background, and wow, the sparkle over the ink...what a good idea. Love the colors, and Misti is perfect for this kind of technique. Good JOB! TFS & Hugs

Aww...how sweet - wondering what he has in his glass??? Love the background and how you did it. You are right the Misti is the "wonder" tool of stamping. Great job.
