Lucky Mouse


That’s right kids! I am back super quick, but it is my fave time of the month! Where my friend Nancy of Rowhouse Greetings and I color up the same image. If you know the backstory we started this as a mojo booster and it has become a fun way to see how different or similar we have colored the same piece. We do not to show them to each other until they are both finished. This month I picked the image and it is from Lili of the Valley aka LOTV and is called Lucky Mouse. Now, on with the Show & Tell…

Nancy’s Version!

I think we did an awesome job of NOT coloring alike this time! except for maybe the grass……Click HERE to go to Nancy’s blog for all the details pf her card.

I only used Olo Markers on this one.

I particularly like how my mushroom came out! I added Nuvo Dream Drops in Moroccan Flame with a stylus to give it those fun growths!

Fun fact, I picked the patterned paper AFTER coloring the image!
