House Mouse DT - #62 - LOVE

Nearly forgot to post my House Mouse card this week, probably because I don't like it!! This working 6 days a week is rubbish - it takes all my crafting time and stems the creative and inspirational juices completely.  The first image is in the bin and I didn't have another, nor did I have any 'Love' style HM stamps so the nearest I could come up with is Mother Love.  Let's face it you'd have to love this little lot - wouldn't you?


The papers are SU and the image was sent to me by my lovely friend Lorraine and is coloured in a mixture of Copics and distress inks.  I used glossy accents on the bubbles and  'popped'  them with the heat gun to give them the appearance of foam. It doesn't really show on the top photograph but you can see on the photograph below, although it has distorted the colour and shape of the image. The Sides are cut with the MS punch, the frame with the Nesties curved rectangles and the hearts with the heart nesties. The lace and pearls are from my stash.
