Ray of Sunshine

Today I have a card to share that I made "just for fun." I have quite a few House Mouse stamps that I've neglected to use because I'm not an expert colorist. I don't have the patience to spend hours coloring one image, and I'm not so good at shading or knowing where shadows go. However, since I've started using Arteza Real Brush Pens, I'm definitely enjoying the process more and liking the end result a lot better. 

Supplies and tools:
  • House Mouse Ray of Sunshine Stamp (Stampabilities)
  • Canson Watercolor Paper
  • Arteza Real Brush Pens
  • Woven 3D Embossing Folder (Sizzix)
  • Word Die (Momenta)
  • Foam Mounting Tape
  • Jet Black Archival Ink (Ranger)

You always do amazing coloring, I even bought some of the Zig pens at my local stamp store that is going out of business after seeing your coloring with these. I love your flowers against that embossing folder, just gorgeous!!

WOW, love the bright sunflowers, wonderful coloring. It's that time of the year here, and a local farm harvests them every year and you go pick your own. Looks like your little mice are enjoying the sun. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
