Calendar Page - recycled
I had participated in a Calendar Swap a few years ago! The end result was an awesome House Mouse calendar with some great images! After that particular year was over I couldn't bare to throw away some of the images, so I have kept them and will create cards from them. Here was the November iamge - the page I was responsible for! I used this piece of image from the House Mouse stamp called "sleeping with the strawberries". I hand drew the scarf and cut it out to add to my mouse. I also hand drew the tree and colored it in by sliding ink pads directly tothe paper. A few punched leave were added for some "movement" on the image.
To create the card I took the calendar page and added it to this square of houndstooth from my scrap bin. The sentiment (from Paper Tray, Papertrey Ink) was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and then I inked aorund the edges of the paper. Added the whole thing to a 4.25" card.
