Maggie S – Strawberry Fields

Hi everyone and for visiting my blog.

This weeks Color Throwdown Challenge colours are: Red, Pink, Green and Brown and for this weeks card I chose a very, very old wooden stamp from my stash of this cute little mouse and his haul of two strawberries. I coloured the mouse and strawberries using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in colours Red No. 020, Wine Red No. 024, Pink No. 025 and Light Pink No. 026 for the strawberries and Light Green No. 041 and Deep Green No. 044 for the stems. The little mouse I coloured in using Oatmeal No. 064, Light Brown No. 061 and Brown No. 060.

I used another item from my stash in the Strawberry Die and cut some paper scraps in colours Red, Pink, Green and White. I stamped and coloured the mouse and strawberries onto some Bristol Cardstock and lightly blended Distress Oxide Pink Flamingo onto the background after masking off the mouse and his strawberries. I then adhered the card front to the brown card base (again using card from my stash) and finished off the card by adding some Honey Bee Chrystal Gems in Yellow to the centre of the strawberry flowers and I glued 3 tiny wooden lady beetles to the strawberry leaves.
