CC&S #379 – Mousy Kisses

I’m a little late for the latest CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out this cool sketch:

And here is my take:

Mousy Kisses | by karen h @ carefree creations

This may be late, but I’m happy it is….I tried to stamp on Monday but my brain just would not focus. I had this set chosen and on my desk, but that was as far as I could get. Today felt like a time to try again.

I don’t know about y’all but I seem to make my cards all backwards. I almost always start with the background…sometimes it works, but others it isn’t ideal. This time I was thinking either light blue or peach for the background but I had a (low-grade) epiphany and thought, well stamp the real things first. I had my green swatches out picking holly colors and when I was moving stuff around to make room to figure out the background, I picked up the pieces and laid them aside – on the swatches…and this happened, lol. I would never have thought of this bright green, but I love it.

To get the mouse ears this way, I did a bunch of masking.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little About the Challenge: This weekly challenge is posted on Tuesday, and alternates between color and sketch (if there is a 5th week in the month you get the double dose of color & sketch).

Why is mousy spelled this way? I really want that e in there. Man I hate language, lol. I would have done well way back when you could spell things any ole way you wanted (especially as I still do that a lot – I’m really glad I’m a programmer, no one will ever guess my variables, lol…don’t worry folks, I work for myself so no one has to deal with it but me).

Um, now that I’m posting, I just realize this sketch had a space for the sentiment…oops! You know for someone who loves to follow instructions, I kinda suck at it 😀

So normally I would cut the last couple of paragraphs, but the world is on fire and I just don’t have any spoons for censoring myself (I am still cutting the cussing, so ….it could be worse). Does anyone really read these any way….or is that just me that looks at the pretty pictures and moves on?!
