House Mouse: Marshmallow Munching

Hi all :-) I am here with a reminder to please join in with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge,

This time I am hosting and the theme is 

Anything Goes 
+ the option of make/decorate an envelope to match.

I used this gorgeous House Mouse 'Marshmallow Munching' Cling Stamp. I inked this cutie up a couple of weeks ago and thought it would make a fabulous Christmas card, so I now have another one to add to my box! 


I just love how the little one is clambering up over his brother to get to the hot chocolate ;-) 
I colored with Copic Markers and the polka dot paper is from an old paper pack, I think it's Lawn Fawn, but don't quote me ;-) 


The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Warm Christmas Wishes stamp set 




Thanks for looking! You have until Sunday 20th June to join in! :-)

I really loved playing with these stamps and made a few cards to share today.

For this first one I used used a super cute Mooch cat stamp, Tree Den, Fairy Buttercups and Birds Clear Stamps and and Hill Mask Stencils.
I am not sure if Mooch is thinking of anyone in particular or just wishing that those birds were within catching distance ;-)


I  used Archival Black Ink to stamp Mooch and the Tree Den and masked before blending Distress Oxide Inks over the background using the Hill Mask stencil for the ground.  I stamped a few Fairy Buttercups along the edge and then splattered with Dylusions Inks. 

I made a set of simple cards using Mimsy, Fairy Buttercups and Birds stamps along with an Orchid Stencil. I used the extra scraps of stencilled paper to decorate the Simon Says Stamp Envelopes.


For this first one I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink 






and last but not least Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink
