More House Mouse Christmas

A couple more House Mouse Christmas cards based on the card kit I picked up at Photo Express on the weekend. I had such fun colouring these two images, especially the bows on the first card. I am so pleased with how well the shading worked on the bows (card #1) and the robe (card #2).

The images were pre-stamped and all papers were pre-cut in the kit so all I had to do was colour the images (with Copics), ink and distress the papers and then put it all together. I swapped the papers around a bit but otherwise followed the kit layouts pretty closely.

So, how are you doing with your Christmas cards? Getting close to being finished? I'm about 3/4 finished (yippee!!!) so will quickly be at the addressing & sending out stage. I have to admit, my least favourite part of the process is writing in each card so I'm dreading it. Might have to uncork some wine this weekend to make it happen.

Colour Create - robin's egg blue, seafoam green, cream (see card #2)
Digital Tuesday Challenge - animals at Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday - anything goes
Creative Inspirations - Christmas gifts (see card #1; I would love to get one of these cute mice for Christmas)
ABC Christmas Challenge - "Y" is for "yuletide"; include holly & berries (see card #2)
