Just for you....

Today I'm sharing this little mouse and kitty card. I guess it could go for any occasion with the "Just for You" sentiment. Since the little mouse had a little heart he was offering up, I thought it worked. This is image done by Gary Robertson... one of my favorite artists for Impression Obsession since he often works a little black cat in to his images. 
I used several colors on the mushrooms, going over colors, changing them, darkening, lightening them... I'm sure I could never color these exactly the same again. LOL! I stamped the image on Neenah Classic Natural White paper, which is a light ivory color. I used a flicking motion with E81 outward from the moon and put no color at all inside the moon. I tried to give the illusion of stripes on the kitty fur. 
After coloring the image completely, I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to add the sentiment in the top corner. To finish the card, I added a little dot of black enamel to give the mouse his beady little eye. I tiny dab of Glossy Accents over the small red heart. I used a Viva Bronze Pearl Pen in the center of the flowers. Finished card is an A2.
