STAMP SOMETHING...Sketch Something...

I am really enjoying all the challenges over at Stamp Something, and this week is no exception! There is a fabulous sketch provided for us by Katharina, who is fast becoming the sketch queen! not only does she come up with some unusual sketches, but her work is to die for!!

My design for this sketch challenge uses another of my gorgeous new 'House Mouse' images :) I just adore these little guys!! This one is 'Maxwell's Note', and although i was seriously tempted to try and stamp on his little slip of paper that he is holding, i decided to resist the urge for fear of messing it up!!
Watercoloured again using ink from the Adirondack pads, which at the moment seems to be my favourite choice, it's so easy doing it this way :) The papers are of course Basic Grey from the 'Sultry' collection. As you may already know, Basic Grey are my all time favourite papers, and i cannot bear to think what i would do without them, and i do actually use them now instead of just looking at them :0)
The sentiment is from a HOTP acrylic set, and i've added a couple of copper hydrangeas and a frosted brad to finish.
Thanks for popping in and i'll see you soon :)
