Live Happily

I have to admit that I am quite addicted to the cute House Mouse Designs.  I get to play with the new releases from Stampendous of these adorable images.  I have two from the April release.  This first one is just too cute.  Lazing around in an inner tube with his big glass of pink lemonade. 

I colored the image with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell watercolor pencils.  Sponged some yellow dye ink around the top and blue dye ink around the bottom.  I highlighted the fish with a touch of glitter and the water with a mix of crystal and light blue glitter.

The second one reminds me of Templeton in Charlotte's web at the fair when he ate all that junk food.
This was a quick card to create and I had fun coloring the image. I love stamping these images and then taking them on the road with me when I travel along with my STAEDTLER Watercolor pencils. Although this image was colored with Copics, something I don't usually do but I wanted that bright blue and green combo which the Copics make shine.
