Be my Valentine

Yes it's that time of the year again, although in the Netherlands Easter eggs have already appeared, Valentine things have not made it to the local supermarket yet.

I made the card for the House Mouse Challenge: Anything goes + Food and Drink, and I thought the mice eating (my) chocolates was fitting.

It the Stampendous Set called Heartfelt Chocolates (HMCP105), I stamped it with a water proof ink,  the sentiment as well , that is from Clearly Besotted (Brushed sentiments).

I colored the image with fluid watercolors. I'm trying to do more loose water coloring, but the control freak in me won't allow me ;-)

Anyway mounted the watercolor panel with foamtape to a cardbase.
