Totally Papercrafts and Stamp Something Challenges :-)

Before moving onto this weeks challenge I would like to welcome the lovely Victoria aka Angeldrummer to our Totally Papercrafts Design team :-) Welcome aboard me darlin :-)

Today I am combining challenges ,, It just so happens that the Stamp Something Challenge has the theme of ,,,,

SAY SOMETHING ,,,, use a sentiment

and the Totally Papercrafts Challenge is


Both challenges are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and the Totally Papercrafts Challenge has an extra sponsor ,, Squigglefly ,, so some fab digi images on offer there too :-)

For my card I used my new House MouseA Birdie told Me stamp, this is the stamp of the month for May :-) I coloured the image with Copics then masked the image and created a cloudy sky using a spellbinders scalloped circle nestie and my copic air brush, I used the same technique for the top half of the background papers, this is the first time I tried this technique and found it really effective and easier than using cloud masks.

The DP is from 3 Bugs in a Rug and I made the ‘sun’ using a Crealies flower die and a button from my drawer, I used some spotty ribbon and cute pram charm to finish Smile

Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some fabulous cards so pop on over to both challenges to see them Smile


Fab n Funky ,,,, Cute and Cuddly ,, I think the mouse is :-)

Partytime Tuesday ,,,,, Animals ( 2nd entry)
