Time Out #41 - Reminder

Hi all!  This is a reminder that our current challenge over at Time Out is still going on for another week.  We are being inspired by these words:
Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile.

I purchased this Harvest Mouse stamp set last week from my LSS.  My friend Cheryl and I were there for an amazing technique class taught by Tammy Tutterow.  More on those techniques in another post!  So one night I stamped and colored three of the five mouse images from the stamp set while I was watching TV.  (I got my color inspiration from Jennifer McGuire who colored these in one of her fabulous videos.)  Coloring them was half the battle!  Then I die cut the circles to place him on, added the striped dp to a base that was embossed with a wood impression plate, and added a twine bow and sequins for sparkle.  The circle is popped up on fun foam.
 
The layout I used is from The Challenge.
 
 
I'm also entering this in the 30 Day Color Challenge.  I haven't colored in a really long time.  I forgot how fun it is!

Sounds like a perfect way to watch TV and still do some fun creative work! The colouring looks so good and the dp and card match perfectly! Super that you were able to follow a class from Tammy! It is always great to see how someone else does things; so much you can learn... Have a fun week!
