House Mouse Designs Challenge -

This Weeks' House Mouse Challenge theme is in the kitchen.... well my laundry is just outside my kitchen so this works for me!  Laundry is NOT my favorite chore, but I do LOVE denim.  When my son was small, he owned every pair of Osh Gosh overalls and jeans that they made along with several Guess and levi brand outfits... I love him in denim. 
The denim was colored with my favorite denim color.  B91, B93, B95 and B97 or B99.  I added a bit of texture by dampening a piece of corderoy fabric with 90% alcohol and then dabbing the image after it was colored and shaded.  It dilutes the ink and leaves a great texture.  Then of course the cute little mice are colored with Copics as well.  Brown mice are E30, E33, E35, Gray mice are W1, W3 and W5.  Face, feet and tail are done with E00, E11 and R20 for the cheeks.

Give the challenge a go.  Although the theme is in the kitchen you can always add an anything goes theme to their challenge!  Win free goodies!

Colorful Hugs,

Jennie Black.
