House Mouse Series: Pin Cushion; rubber cling stamp

Last evening, I had the opportunity to play around with my Faber-Castell Chrosmos colored pencils. Below is what I’d stamped and colored. It’s the same stamp that I used here, I just did a few things differently.

House Mouse Series - Pin Cushion
House Mouse Series: Pin Cushion


It’s a rubber cling stamp from the House Mouse Series and is titled, “Pin Cushion.” I purposely put the picture on an angle. I thought it was an interesting detail and somehow it seemed to fit the card. I then added a yellow embossed sheet and placed it on orange card stock.  I still have some things to do with this card.

I must say that I really love my Faber-Castel Polychromos colored pencils. The pencils have a creamy consistency and you are able to apply several layers for shading. Since I have only 11 or 12 Faber-Castel pencils, I’m a bit limited with the amount of shading I can do; however, I do believe I’ll purchase a set of 24 to tide me over until my big shipment of 120 pencils arrive. I’m purchasing that set from my daughter’s art teacher. Yes, I could purchase them from Amazon and get them within two days (since I’m an Amazon Prime member) but I really want to support a local business owner. Even if it means me paying a bit more for the product.

Later this week, I’m hoping to get some sewing completed. I want to make a few summer dresses to actually wear before the weather turns cool!
