Under the Weather?.....

Hello everyone: This week the new challenge at "Less is More" is "DOWN UNDER".  I must confess I was a bit stumped at first but then I got it!!! Their guest designer is Kylie and she is from Australia so, in her honor, this is the theme.
So I thought and I thought and then it came to me, how about going a bit outside the box and make a card like this one?

Ok, so this card has nothing to do with beautiful Australia, right? My idea on this card is feeling "UNDER THE WEATHER" and, trying to keep with the theme, I did used the colors of Australia's sports teams, (got the idea from Hannelie from Dessert Diva , thanks Hannelie).
This image is from House Mouse Designs  and it's called "Mouse Drops". I stamped it onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with the aqua painter and SU markers in Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, Garden Green, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Basic Gray. The sentiment is from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Gosh, you can tell that this little mouse is totally feeling Under the Weather, so badly that he is willingly taking a drop of that green medicine, I do hope it tastes like limeade.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.

The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Curly Cute", I love the font on all 4 images.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you go take a look at the "Less is More" blog and give this fun challenge a try, this theme can be really interpreted in a lot of ways.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Sonny, each time I make a card with them, I think of you. This was a fun challenge to figure out, I have more ideas for later.

Thank you Gerrina, once I had the idea I reached for this stamp, if anybody is feeling UNDER the Weather is that little mouse.
