Brambly Hedge Sneak Peek!

I'm sharing a sneak peek from the new Brambly Hedge release coming later this month. This adorable swinging mouse (I call him Tarzan Mouse) is from the Sea Story set. 
Spectrum Noir Blending Solution I colored one section at a time, coloring on the edge with the darkest color, lightly towards the center of a section with the lighter color, and then blended with a very small amount of solution and a light touch in small circles. In smaller areas, I used only the pencils, blending with the lightest color. NOTE: I put my blending solution in a small container with a sponge to control how much I pick up.

overalls: 070, 074, solution 
shirt: 024, 026, 112
mouse: 034, 085, 091, solution
hands, feet, tail: 085, 091

Next, time for the sky. I masked the mouse with a low tack tape and made clouds using the new eBrush System with Spectrum Noir Markers.

What a cool tool - a wonderful way to add color! I have so many ideas for backgrounds... I used TB8 and a piece of torn paper to create streaks of  clouds in the sky. 

Before removing the mask, I stamped the large tree are from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Pinescape using Distress Ink Pads - pine needles, mowed lawn. 

I sprayed the base card with the same cloud bands, extended his rope with a fine line marker, and added a sentiment from another new Brambly Hedge set, High Hills. 

Crafter's Companion has had several new releases.
