Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #1


Hi! I am so sorry for my lack of posts lately! Apparently June is a busy time here! I haven't had time to do anything lately! But today I made time for this little card. Its 4x4 square. It took me forever! LOL, way longer than any tiny card should. Its for the all new WM sketch challenge. Hop over and take a look! I used my new Afternoon Tea set along with Vintage Circles. The patterned paper is from Pebbles and Co. The button is from PTI, as well as the white card stock. The ink is Memento Tuxedo black (I finally abandoned my Palette noir in favor of Memento). I used my nesties to cut out the circle. The teacups are cut by hand and the saucers are hand drawn with black pen. Thanks for stopping in!

It LOOKS like it took awhile Michele, but it was worth it, becasue it's adorable. I love the tilted cups and the one that is popped up, plus I like the curvy sentiment panel too. FUN!

Where do I start? I love this! The teacups are adorable - I love that you drew in your own saucers. I also love how you curved the sentiment. Hope things are well - so glad to see that you could play along with our first sketch challenge!
