Trick or Treat for Freshly Made Sketches.....

Hello Everyone: I'm back with another sweet House Mouse card to participate in the 200 sketch challenge celebration for Freshly Made Sketches . I've been blogging since December of last year but even more recently than that, I started participating in several challenges, which helped me gain confidence about sharing my cards with not only my dear card swapping friends and my family but with all of you wonderful people out there in the card making world.
Here is the card I made to help celebrate this mile stone for FMS.
I adore this little mice, (secretly, I wish they live in my house). This image is so cute and so sweet that it was joyful to color. I use Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil, which when applied to the image, blends the colors beautifully. On my last post,  a dear friend asked me about this paper stumps and wanted to know where to get them, you can really get them at any craft store but I got them at Amazon, they are not that expensive at all.
I hope you like this card, I know Halloween is a couple of months away but I'm getting ahead in my card making for it, this card is for my 10 y/o granddaughter Anastasia.
Thank you for visiting and for your comments, I love reading them, and as always, if you have any questions, please ask me.  
This is the sketch that inspired this card, I just used it horizontally. Till next time
Hugs from Maria.

  4. How adorable ! This is perfect for your GD . I know she will love it !
    Believe me when I tell you that this is the only kind of mice you want at your house ! Not my favorite animal !! My suggestion would be if you choose to have mice is get a BIG CAT !!

  8. Maria, this is another adorable HM card. Those little mice are hard to resist. I've read that you used the baby oil technique before and I am intrigued. I am off the the craft store to buy stumps to try this. Thanks, always, for your inspiration.

  10. Maria, such a sweet card! I love your coloring and I am going to check out those stumps tomorrow. I love to color. It's so calming to me. I just bought some Gelatos? Not sure how they work either but I'm going to give them a try. I suspect after Friday I will have more time to play. Can't wait. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration. Hugs 😍
