Keeping Cool

Hello blog friends. I made this card late last night. I was in the mood to dig out old things that I haven’t used in a long time. This house mouse stamp is the very first stamp I bought after placing my first stampin up order. It was perfectly themed, at the time we lived Arizona probably the hottest part of Az too, the Mohave Desert. Needless to say our little mouse friend is doing his best to stay cool. I also dug out some of my oldest prima flowers and a paper pack I bought well over a year ago from stampin up. I have to say I don’t get to craft as much as I’d like so I can’t justify buying new supplies often.  And my crafting time is going to be cut even shorter, because I start school again on Monday. It was a nice little break.  I have a full load of classes this semester. Biology & bio Lab, (2 classes) Chemistry & Chem Lab (2 classes) and a Public Speaking class. Although most who know me, know I don’t have a problem with that. Haa! So hopefully I’ll be back for a few more challenges before the weekend is up. Here’s my card and the challenges I’d like to enter it in:

I used heat and stick with dazzling diamonds and glossy accents over the ice cubes to give a 3D effect. Not coming through that great on the photo.

And this picture is just added in because our dog Roxy wanted to be in the photo. She was jumping all over the table as I was trying to photograph this card. She’s such a ham. I call her our lil muppet.

I also wanted to add I used Copics but I tried a new technique with them. I added prisma colored pencils over it with OMS technique. I think it really made the image pop. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
