House Mouse 'Share A Sip'


Hi all, this week on the  House Mouse and Friends Challenge there is a fabulous blog hop. I am sitting this one out but there are fabulous prizes and lots of inspiration so you will need to hop on over to the Challenge Blog for more info ;-)

The theme is 

USE A STENCIL
of course you must also use a House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper image and you can always choose the Anything Goes option. 


The lovely peeps at Stampendous sent me a lovely Quatrefoil Dreamweaver Stencil and a tub of Glossy White Embossing Paste to use. For the background I blended a selection of Distress Inks, i.e. Picked Raspberry, Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemon through the stencil and then splattered with Dylusions Linen White and Black inks. When the inks were dry I used a Dot Fade Stencil and the embossing paste to create some more texture. I really love how the background turned out, very colourful and festive don't ya think? :-) 

I used a super cute Stampendous Share A Sip House Mouse Cling Stamp, coloured with copic markers and then I painted the bird with Lindy's Gang Magical Powders oh my goodness, it looks like a real humming bird, the feathers are so beautifully shimmery! 


Thanks for looking!
