House Mouse Challenge #25 4 leaf clover!
Hi! This little mouse must be Irish... he was lucky enough to find a four leaf clover (do you know how hard they are to find???). I bought this image awhile ago just for St. Patty's Day (yes, I'm a large part Irish). I used green and white paper, using 2 different Cuttlebug embossing folders, one for the top and one for the bottom white. On the top, I used Paisley, and took an ink pad and lightly colored the raised images. I used green Offray ribbon and a green flower (that I bought for St. Patty's Day :-) ). I put the green Kaiser pearls on the image itself and put a green Nesties scalloped border around it. I put white dots around the scalloped edges. I put the whole image on foam dimintionals to pop it out. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I must admit, this image was tricky to color! It's very detailed with the clover leaves and stems. I couldn't resist doing this challenge, since I had the mouse image and I loved the sketch! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
