Happy Dance * MFT Countdown (5)

Hello and welcome to the February release countdown by My Favorite Things. Let's kick things off with a super cute mouse and her happy birthday dance!

This mouse by Stacey Yacula is just the sweetest. I totally love the sentiment that goes along with it. I used the no-line coloring technique for this card. First, I stamped the mouse and the cake with a very light dye ink. Grout Gray by MFT is my favorite ink for this. Then, I colored my image with colored pencils. It does take quite some time but it is very relaxing and I love the result. For finishing up my card, I did a little bit of masking and some ink blending.
