Together just you and me

 Firstly I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who have left me messages. It's always lovely to receive compliments on your work. 

I just love this Simply Gorjuss stamp. I have coloured her in so many different combinations and this week its all shades of grey for Challenge #33 Monochromatic at Diva's by Design. The number 3 is my luck number so that should make this entry double lucky ;D

I didn't realise how many black/grey papers I had floating about in my stash! The papers I have used for this card are Scoops Black by Top Line Creations, All Fall by Nancie Rowe-Janitz for Fancy Pants Designs and AcidWashed Griffin by Basic Grey. I have also used a Maya Road Office Shear. 

I didn't have any black/grey flowers so I used my Copics to colour white flowers. I also used my Copics to colour the heart pin and pearls. The ribbon is from one of my local scrapping stores. I am almost out of this and can't remember which store I found it at! The rub on is from a $2 shop. 

My Simply Gorjuss stamp "Waiting" was coloured with Copics C1, C3, C5, C7 and C9. I used E50, E53 and R20 for her face. 

Thanks for stopping by. 

I am entering this card in the following challenge;

We're "Mint Tea" be together

This week I discovered the House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog. This weeks Challenge is Anything Goes with an optional Tea theme. I have so many House Mouse stamps and one of my favourites We're "Mint Tea" be together is just perfect for this challenge. 

All papers and embellishments are from my scrap pile this week. The ink I have used to distress my papers is Stampin Spot Sage Shadow from Stampin' Up. 

Such cute little mice! The ladybug is a brad from Around The Block. I got a bit adventurous and even pulled out the sewing machine for this card. Think I need a bit more practice. Does anyone else have a sewing machine that is only ever used for paper!

I have coloured this image with copics
Mice: E50, E53, E11, E13, E15, R20
Tea Pot: BG10, BG18, BG72, BG75
