House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

A Sketch and a Kind Thought
This weeks challenge is in memory of one of our HM challenge participants - Joanne. Joanne passed away suddenly December 12th. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joanne's family & friends at this sad time.
For the sketch - you can flip it, shrink it, rotate it, twist it etc but you MUST be able to see the original sketch in yourwork.

For the kind thought - the Johnson family has left a request on Joannes blog. "Joanne spread much joy through her card making. If you would like to do something in memory of her, we are sure she would like you to send a card to someone in need."

Please make your card based on the sketch and send it to someone in need. For all the challenge details and to see all the creations by the Design Team - click HERE.

Here's my card. My friend Emma stamped this image and sent it to me. Main image and sentiment layers are popped up on dimensionals. Cardbase is 5"x6"

This time I colored with Copic Markers. After the coloring was done, I took a piece of old towel and wet it with Copic Blender Solution -- then dabbed it on the image to give it a little textured look...and soften up the colors just a bit. Worked out totally slick!

Allllrighty then....since I'm super late posting my's WAY past my bedtime....I'll come back and finish up the recipe for my card later. (12/16 updated & done)

Very cute card! Love the effect of the blender solution dabbed on. I'll have to try that when I get more copics.
