House Mouse Climbing Iris and Hummingbird in Watercolor

This week the option is to add stitching, real or faux, to your entry over at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  I selected the Climbing Iris stamp and colored it with Windsor & Newton watercolors on Master's Touch Watercolor paper.  I created an easel card. Using Gina K paper for the card base.
The background was created with alcohol inks. I added a couple of pieces of Washi tape. The sentiment from Wild Rose Studio was embossed with white,  popped for dimension, and a few large white pearls added from my stash.

Also sharing with The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Contest.  

Thanks for your visit. I do enjoy reading your comments!
