There is a precious little song that goes, "I love you a bushel and a peck" and continues on with "you bet your pretty neck I do" and lots of "doodle oodle oodle oohs." It's fun to sing and even more special if you remember having it sung to you. My Mom and I still sing this song over the phone now and then.
So of course (you know what's coming, don't you?) when I saw the darling Harvest Mouse set from MFT.... well, you know the rest! It has the line from the song on a sentiment stamp. Although please don't tell Mom this song is connected in any way with the mice she dreads. Even if they are super cute like these!
I cut some card stock for hills, and washed over them to accent with Copic colors. In fact all the coloring was done with Copics. I added some dots and stitching with a white pen.
Besides the die cuts that coordinate with the images, I chose the Die-namics Blueprints 24 dies and used the shaped panels and tag for my scene. I can't wait to use this fun set again!
This is my third entry for the MFT design contest, highlighting the concept of color saturation. I balanced the brightly saturated images and scene with the neutral gingham and a pop of white. You should check the contest out, there are dozens of fabulous entries!
Do you know that I used this song in one of my Artisan DT projects for Stampin' Up! You can find the photo tray here. It's one of those projects that has found a home on my kitchen wall for fall.
I am so glad that you came by to visit, it always makes me smile to know that you pop in! Thanks!
