Some Stampendous House Mouse, Mice? Meeces?

Happy Monday from Skyway Drive!

   Last Tuesday was ‘class day’ at The Queen’s Ink with my local Copic instructor, Nancy Sheads of Rowhouse Greetings. On a good month I can take a class with Nancy twice. My friend Susan, of Simple Stampin refers to this as Continuing Education. Which is true, as I always learn a little something, and often have AHA! moments. 
   
  Are you familiar with Stampendous’s House Mouse Series?  They are darn adorable. I have several of the mini’s. They look kind of intimidating to color. But, they are not! Stampendous even has a coloring chart for them. Click Here For Chart.  We did three cards, and I chose to make the mice on each card a different color. We colored them by starting on the outer edge of the fur with a small amount of the darkest shade, then medium and light. 

  Monica (yes they all have names) was colored with Copics: T1, T3 and T5. My shading was not so smooth on this one, resulting in what looks like a dark ring in the main photo. I also totally screwed up cutting this little girl out.  I ran her through my scan n cut, and I wanted to do just the outline, but I did not check it close enough and it cut off a lot of her edges. I should have cut her with a border. But, Live AND Learn. I will know better next time, not every card is perfect and it’s super cute anyways! 

  This Cutie was done with: E35, E33 and E31. Look at how cool that grasshopper is! 


These guys were colored with W3, W5 and W6. 

Share the fun!
