When I saw this stamp I fell in love with it. The image is a large one I wasn’t able to add a lot of extras but I did the best I could with it. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out as there is a lot of activity going on in the image! Once I got started it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it was going to be!
My bottom layer is So Saffron and I stamped it with my Antique Cracking background stamp then I sponged around the edge with Creamy Caramel. On this layer I put one edge of black CS cut with my Deckle paper edgers. Then it was layered with Creamy Caramel and Black and then finally my image. I added Glitter Snow to the snow and I think it looks so real you can almost feel the chill in the air! I cut out and lifted the front mouse with dimensionals. I think it turned out way better than I thought it would. Oh and check out the mouse in the lower left corner of the crate he sure looks hungry!

I love House Mouse stamps. And you are right, they are intimidating when you 1st start, but end up being so much fun. You did a great job with your coloring and I love the snow! It looks great. Great wayto top off a great card!

My son plays hockey and I've always loved this stamp. I just thought it would be to hard to color. You proved me wrong. You did a great job with this. Now I could kick myself because I never bought the stamp. Thanks for sharing.
