Some Bits and Pieces - Flamenco Mice Digital Stamps

Hi Everyone, I have some more new digital stamps to share with you. Do you remember Jeanin's Forest Friends blog hop? Well, she's come up with some more *free* digital stamps and another hop. You should have arrived here from Nina, but if not and you want to start from the beginning, head back to Jeanin and follow the hops :)

These are the Flamenco Mice. I thought they would work beautifully with some interaction, given that I think they are dancing.

Aren't they cute? I started by resizing my images in Word and then printing them out onto some Neenah 110lb so that I could do some Copic colouring. I then fussy cut them out - and they weren't too fiddly, but you do need to be careful around the rose.

I had printed the other elements (rose, fan and maracas) really small, so did what I could without chopping them apart while fussy cutting.

I took a panel of water colour card and blended some distress inks onto it to look like a sunset - Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon worked well.

I then took a panel of Neenah 110lb and cut an aperture for the sun and one for my slider. I attached a slider element to a piece of scrap Neenah and then my female mouse on top, sandwiching the panel in between. I added my male mouse at the edge and then lots of foam tape at the back of the panel before positioning on my watercolour panel. Hey presto she slides over to flamenco with him in the sunset!

I added the other elements around the edge of the panel and a fan to the end of the pull tab. These are lovely images to colour.
