MFT August Vault Release - Harvest Mouse

Hi Friends!
Welcome back for day 3 of the August vault release from My Favorite Things

Over the course of the next few days we will be bringing back LOTS of previously retired Birdie Brown stamps and dies.
For todays project, I decided to play with the super adorable Harvest Mouse stamp set. I am a real sucker for anything Mouse released when it comes to stamps…I simply adore coloring them up.
I started by stamping out a few of the image from the stamp set, coloring them up with my Copic markers and then cutting them out using the coordinating Die-namics.

For my background, I wanted to play with my inks and do a bit of ink smooshing. I pulled out the Watercolor Wash Freeform stencil and applied Distress Ink directly to the positive inlay piece from the stencil set. Once I had a liberal amount of ink on the stencil, I lightly misted it with water and then placed the stencil ink side down, directly onto some water color card stock.
Once my beautiful fall colored background was dried, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Harvest Mouse stamp set and then popped up the colored images with foam tape.

I will see you tomorrow for the final day of vault previews
