Hi bloggers! Oh my goodness! I can barely believe it as I type it, but STAMPtember™ is already half way through! Wow! I loved reading on Facebook the other day that one of your favorite things about this month has been the blogs! Wow, we just love hearing that, and we also feel very blessed to be surrounded by such talented designers & in general GREAT people in the industry!
Speaking of great people… meet Lorraine Aquilina! Or, as we all lovingly call her, Lols. :) Not only is she an extremely talented crafter, but she has a HEART OF GOLD! I’m very fortunate to work with Lols often, and even though we only get to literally see each other about once a year (she lives an ocean apart from me, in Malta!), I think of her as a dear friend. She’s a busy wife, mum of 2, & ‘foster’ mum to her beloved dog Jessie, and her heart melts to many kitties that are fortunate to come to her door step! Not coincidentally, her love of animals runs into the stamp lines as well, and she loves House Mouse stamps so we thought she would be the perfect candidate to show you how to color these adorable mice perfectly!
Lols graciously provided a picture by picture demo of how you can get the perfect shading, & it sure is lovely! Lols, will explain her process as she goes:
Now for the finished products :-)
For the card I used papers and sentiment from the August Card Kit
