Priceless Memories - House Mouse Challenge #33, use Multiple images




Happy Monday everyone. Over at the House Mouse Monday Challenge blog, one of the Design team members " America" has challenged us to use multiple images on our card/project. There are several possibilities for this challenge - Take one image and use it multiple times or take one image and separate it into several sections or use a variety of different images on your card. America also has 5 adorable House Mouse stamps to give away to the lucky winner, so make a card/project and post your card here. This is what I came up with.... (on my card - I used a variety of different images) I really wanted to use the "Say Cheese" stamp - the little mouse taking pictures, I thought about it for a while, then I remembered I have a collage style picture frame and I really liked the layout, so my card is fashioned after the collage frame. I stamped all the images (Mouse Bounce, Poppin good birthday, Perfect Fit and Together under the Moon) on whisper white, using stazon jet black ink, then I cut out only the parts I wanted, lightly water coloured them in going gray. For the main focal image (Say Cheese) - I stamped it three times. I drew in the floor and walls on the bottom image, water coloured all images. Cut out the camera and mouse from one and just the mouse from the other, layered over main image. Added the photo corners and brads. Punched holes down the right side and laced the ribbon. Added the metal sentiment. I think this looks like a cover for a scrapbook album.... what do you think?


Please go on over to the House Mouse Monday blog and check out all the other fabulous DT cards/projects. If you can join us, please make sure you upload your cards on the Blog.


Thanks for stopping by....


Happy Stamping
