Happy Monday to all you House Mouse Lovers..... Today's challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog was issued by Me - Use buttons on your card or project - just make sure you use at least one House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies image.
Here is my take on the project.
Below is the inside of my card.
I stamped this adorable House Mouse image "Feathered Friends" on Stampin Up whisper white with Stazon Jet Black. Coloured image with Prismacolour pencil crayons, gamsol and blending stumps. Masked the image and sponged on the clouds ( I used a scalloped oval and sponged around edges randomly to make the clouds). Clear embossed the birds beaks, party hat beak and all eyes. Matted image with SU Not Quite Navy and Kraft, sewed edges. Base card is 5 1/2 x 6 3/4 - Kraft. The Leaf and gingham designer paper is from Recollecton's Autum pack - purchased at Michaels. I ran the center Kraft strip through the Cuttlebug with the Hounds tooth embossing folder. All panels matted with Not Quite Navy and edges sponged with Close to Cocoa. I cut out the blue NQN buttons with the Sizzix Buttons #5 die (Purchased through Stampin Up). I have put small buttons under the die cut buttons and sewed onto card.. I liked the look better when buttons were popped up. I used my Labels two Nestability to cut out the shape my "Friends Sentiment" is stamped on. Attached the feathers and finished the inside. House Mouse panel is popped up.
I used this weeks Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge # SC246, plus this also qualifies for this months Splitcoast Fan Club/Dirty Dozen - Winged things...
