House Mouse Series: Pin Cushion

Last evening, after my daughter and I were settled, I pulled out the colored pencils I’d purchased (earlier that day) from the art store where she’s attending Art camp. The brand of the art pencils I’m using escapes me at the moment; however, I’ll update when I have a chance to look at them.

Here’s what I made…

This particular House Mouse stamp is called “Pincushion.” Isn’t it adorable?

Here’s a plain version of the stamp.

Of course… there’s room for improvement; however, I really love this stamp and I’m slowly getting used to making cards again.  At the last moment, I decided to add a strip of the corresponding envelope paper to the card. I thought it’d match up better that way. Early this morning, I shipped off the card to it’s owner. They should receive it in a few days. Along with this card, I made one for the BF too! However, I forgot to take a picture of that. Oh well… I’ll get him to do the honors and take the picture himself.

Last evening, I did watch a few colored pencil tutorials and I’m finding that I’m not disliking them as much. In fact, I’ve decided when I do decide to make a “pricey” colored pencil purchase. I’ll invest in Faber-Castell’s Polychrosmos colored pencils. From what I’ve been reading, they are amazing, they don’t break when sharpened and they should last me a very long time.
