The old boot
This is my last contribution as a guest designer for the House Mouse and Friends challenge for which the theme this week is ' use silver and/or gold' . I have enjoyed taking part.
This House Mouse image, 'Finders Keepers', was one of the first stamps that I bought. I was attracted to it because there is such a lot going on. In this particular instance I have decided to use golden acorns. Those mice will get such a shock when they try to eat them! I have coloured the image with a mixture of Promarkers, distress ink and gold and silver gel pens.
I matted paper printed from one of Joanna Sheen's CD ROMS and gold mirri card onto white card having first wrapped brown ribbon round one end of the paper. I then glued gold and silver card candi onto the ribbon.
The image once coloured was matted and layered onto brown core'dinations cardstock and gold mirri card. The sentiment was die cut from gold mirri card using tattered lace dies and glued onto a frame printed from the above CD ROM and then matted onto brown core'dinations cardstock.
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Creative Fingers - anything goes + optional something old (stamp)
Crafty Catz - anything goes
QKR Stampede - 3 favourite embellishments (dies for sentiment, ribbon, card candi)
Passion For Promarkers - include a sentiment
