London mouse! Eek!! I’ve been eyeing these stamps ever since it was released in September 2015, and I just couldn’t for the life of me get a hold of them because every time there was a sale (which is when I allow myself to spend money) they were always sold out! Well I finally got them during the Christmas sale and I was so excited to finally receive them!
I’ve always wanted to revisit some color combination schemes that I used to learn in art class, and I thought given that London flag colors are blue, red, and white, it was very fitting to limit myself to only those colors. I decided to use colored pencils, so here you see the only 3 colored pencils I used for all the coloring, blue, red, and white.
After the coloring was done, I decided to make a simple background blended with Rose Quartz dye ink. Since the mice are the stars of this card, I simply stamped the buildings, trees, and lamps from the set with a blue (Atlantic pigment ink) that matched shade of the hats. No coloring needed!
And to complete the card, I added some black striped washi tape to the bottom of the card, as if its a road for the mice, and added a simple “hello” sentiment that a I created with my DYMO labeler. All the mice and sentiment were elevated with foam tape.
LOVE this stamp set!!!! You’ll definitely be seeing more cards from me with these stamps.
