CAS Colours and Sketches #359

The calendar says Tuesday which means it's time for another challenge over at the CAS Colours and Sketches blog.  Samantha closes out February with a very interesting sketch.

I welcomed a new to me set of stamps into my craft world recently (sounds much better than I bought another set of stamps, doesn't it?) that I wanted to christen so I adapted one of the images to fit the sketch.  

Unlike my dear friend Catherine, I can't get enough 'shrooms to eat or to stamp so when I saw this one from Your Next Stamp come up on sale, I had to have it.  (Not to mention I'll be flooding my grandson's mailbox with Miss You/Love You cards for his entire childhood.  LOL!)  

I stamped and colored the image and then used a circle die to cut it out.  I matted that onto a larger circle die from which I cut out the tiny circles using a die from the Essentials by Ellen collection at the Ellen Hutson online shop.  The cloud (which represents the triangle in the sketch) is from my favorite set made by the Ink Blot Shop.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white on black cardstock which is also part of the YNS set.  When set on the red card base it just didn't seem finished to me so I added a piece of vellum and some faux stitching using a white gelly roll pen.  

I love this little mouse and 'shroom and am anxious to play with the other images in the set.  I hope you'll find some time to come and play with us at CC&S this week!
