Eatin & Sleepin in a Sunflower



I never realised this House Mouse stamp is dated 1990 - over 20 years old! Not that I've had it that long or in fact been card making anything like that time. It's one of those stamps I bought early on cause I liked the image, then I thought it was too big so shyed away from using it. It was however perfect for the sketch over at Pixie Cottage this week along with a number of other challenges. Backing paper - Basic Grey. Colouring - Promarkers, & I don't know if you can see, but the top mouse is double stamped and layered, & the image edge inked with distress ink.
