House Mouse Flag Card


Good Morning! I spent quite a bit of time this weekend coloring. Sometimes I will do that, I will just stamp or print a bunch of images and then just color. I have always loved coloring, with crayons, pencils or markers, it doesn't really matter, coloring is just relaxing for me. Most of the time now I use Copics when I color but sometimes I want to play with pencils. I am getting another box ready to send to a Marine friend in Afghanistan and thought this House Mouse image would be the perfect on to include on the accompanying card. When coloring House Mouse images I do tend to reach for my pencils more often than my Copics, I am not sure why either, but they are generally my first choice. Image is from House Mouse Stamps and was colored with Prismacolor pencils, paper is from The Paper Studio (I think) and the stars are from my stash.
