Peony Song

Before I get too involved with today's projects I wanted to post this entry I have for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Anything Goes with the option of Gingham or Plaid. I chose to use some plaid with my design this time.


I used a combination of  Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and Bic markers to color the design. But I also brushed some ink around the edges of the scene too. The House Mouse Designs image I chose is called Peony Song. The pattern paper, card stock and inks are from Gina K. Designs.

Thanks for the visit and I hope your day is off to a great start. We had an electrical outage so now a lot of the appliances that have clocks have to be corrected. I always hate when that happens. LOL But it is not a big thing but mainly an annoyance.

Until next time take care and God bless,
Verna

How adorable! You made Bruce smile - he loves it, too! Very pretty coloring. I just colored up a House Mouse image that I hope to finish in time so maybe we will see you over on their blog soon :* I know what you mean with the power. Our roof is leaking so we are searching for a company. Always something, or two or three or four 😊 Have a very restful sleep to you and Arlin 💜

I love that image and how you have colored it, Verna! We get rain so rarely here that I feel just like those mice when it rains! Remember trying to catch it - and snowflakes - in your mouth as a little kid? Carefree days. Sorry about your outage. Storming there? Keep safe! Hugs, Darnell

Adorable image, Verna, your mice are cute! Love the plaid background pp. electrical issues - ugh! Hate those outages too, very annoying, and by the time you get everything set back up, the time changes - double ugh!

A sweet image beautifully coloured Verna - and I love that dark plaid paper behind the image.
I know what you mean by having to reset the clocks - always an annoyance :)
Stay safe

That sweet image brings a big smile to my face. I adore how you colored it and brought it to life.

I think those mice are imitating Gene Kelly in Singing in the Rain. They do look joyous. It's nicely colored and the plaid paper is beautiful. Thank you for joining us at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge. {Bunny} Designer for House Mouse and Friends

Those mice look so delighted with the rain and I love the plaid framework too. Oddly, our power went out the previous night too at around 1:30 am. I was awake and suddenly aware of the complete darkness for a minute or two before it came back on again - then like you; reset clocks, water softener, etc

They have been waiting for that rain for a while! Aren't they so cute? Great coloring and the plaid background works so well with the scene. Nice work!

Adorable House Mouse card, Verna! Yeah, I always hate having to reset all the clocks too; it's a pain. Our power goes out way too often.

What a wonderful concert! Makes me smile! Electricity outage and resetting clocks - definitely an annoyance. I can never get used to that. In Germany we hardly ever had any - much better infrastructure there. No comparison. Even 30 years ago when I was still living there....

Inkyfingers said...

I love this sweet image, Verna and pencil colouring is just lovely and soft! I love the blue plaid background too.
Hope all your clocks are saying the right time now! Hate when that happens.
Have a lovely weekend.

Singing in the rain... I love it! Looks like I'll be doing that today, too. So cute, Verna! Love how the House Mouse stamps often include a bit of pretty in them, too. Those clocks -- there's always something I forget to reset.
