Butterfly Flight

Today 2RedBananas is sponsoring the House Mouse Challenge. It's a sketch challenge this week and it's a great one in my opinion!!

I don't own any House Mouse stamps. I like the images and certainly have loved every card I've ever seen made with them. But the coloring always intimidated me. I used to own a stamp for some wacky reason; I don't remember buying it but I bet I picked it up at a big discount when our local stamp store closed many years ago. Jeannette was kind enough to stamp me a few images and send them my way to use for the challenge. I have to say, it wasn't near as hard to color that mouse as I thought it would be! I colored and blended with my Prismacolor pencils on this one. I used a blender pencil as well along the edges.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to visit the House Mouse Challenge blog to see the sketch and their design team creations. And I hope you'll take a moment to see what the rest of the Banana Bunch did for this challenge.

You can find several House Mouse stamps and sentiments in the 2RedBananas store. Jeannette carries the Stamp of the Month and the cutie for July is calling my name! I swear that is me some days in the Texas Heat! Have a beautiful day girls!!
