House Mouse - Let It Snow!!


Our challenge this week on House Mouse & Friends challenge blog is let it snow!!

This week we would like to see snow on your work. This could be the word 'snow', paper with snow flakes, a snow themed stamp, white puffy 'snow'................... the list is endless

Here's the card i made...................

I kept the card quite white and simple which i think sometimes gives a more striking effect. I'm still into colouring with distress inks and this is the first House Mouse image i have coloured this way and i'm sure it won't be the last as i love the way you can get the colours so bold.

Thanks for stopping by. x

These little guys look so cozy all snuggled together in their stocking in the snow. Love the color choices and your snowflake-embossed background. Very cute card, Emma!

Your card is stunning!!! I wish I had the nerve to try coloring with reinkers, but it scares the heck out of me!!! I love the look, but very seriously doubt I could achieve it. I love the white with the crimson...so very elegant. L-O-V-E your card!!!

Hugs!
Carolyn
