Bewitching Pumpkins: Day 23 of 31 Days of Halloween

Today I bring you a sweet card. Really sweet. One of those things that will probably make you say “Awwwww!” I can hear it already…


So yeah. I don’t  normally do sweet…but who could resist these adorable mice? When I owned my scrapbooking & stamp store, I ordered so many of these mice stamps from Stampabilities. I just love the whole series of them. This, of course, is one of my absolute favorites though!


I have to to my own horn for a minute and say that I really LOVE how this card turned out. The coloring is exactly what I wanted, and I think I was able to blend my colored pencils really well to get a nice smooth finish with a lot of depth. You can click on either of the photos to see it bigger.

I didn’t do anything else to the orange card but ink the edges with a purple chalk ink. This image speaks for itself! I hope you like it…even though it’s not macabre or creepy…it is perfect for Halloweenie!  Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!!!
