Little moments

So the long weekend started and I wanted to 
start relaxing and what would be a better way than to color a wee bit.

So I took my Inktense pens and this adorable House Mouse image.
Got it done just before bedtime, :=D

challenges to go and be inspired...

For this card I got the idea of the image from 
Art Impression's "Make it Mini" -challenge
Sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches:
Also entering Less is More

and HSL April Die cut challenge

Keep your temper, ATC

So today I'm showing the third and last of the
set of ATC's I made for Gecko Galz Alice challenge.

Using Gecko Galz freebie, colored with Copics
Background is a digital paper from Lozzy, set "It' Dark".

I think this solder has been so sloppy with his painting job,
that he wishes the Red Queen would keep her temper ... LOL

Here's all 3 ATC's in same photo:

Love how the "mood" of the card changes, 
just depending what colors I used.

Tämä The East Windin kuva on yksi
suosikeistani, sukat on kiva väritellä ja
kasvojen ja mekon värityksellä saa ihan eri ilmettä kuvaan.

Värittelin Copiceilla ja hameessa on PAAAALJON 
kimalleliimaa, :=)
