This week and next, we're having a different kind of blog hop, including friends on the other side of the world and across the pond. this will include the Woodware UK team, the Stencil Specialists in Australia, the House Mouse and Friends team, and of course...the Stampendous team. All of us will be playing along with the team on the House Mouse and Friends Blog. Everyone will be challenged to use a stencil with their House Mouse Designs® by Stampendous. What makes this hop really different is, in order to win one of the amazing prize packages available, YOU need to play along with the challenge as well! Just submit your own creations HERE using the Linky tool for the HMFMC #215 challenge. There will be three prize packages available, each including ONE House Mouse Designs® Cling Rubber Stamp, plus ONE Large Dreamweaver stencil, and ONE jar of Dreamweaver Embossing Paste.
Here is what I've created for this challenge...
Did you ever think you'd have an opportunity to break out your Stampendous Creative Palette* to use along with House Mouse Designs®*? I did just that to create this card featuring the Cling "Rain Flower"* stamp image. Various shades of neon re-inkers were dropped onto a slightly wet Creative Palette* before using a brayer to blend the colors slightly. Panels of Mixed Media White* cardstock were placed over the wet ink, and swirled a bit, transferring the ink to the panels. (Keep wetting the ink a bit with water to get more panels until you've run out of ink. This makes it easier to clean your CP, plus provide you with cool backgrounds for future use.) On this particular panel, I sprinkled the wet ink in patches with Stampendous' "Spoonful of Confetti" Essentials mix*, and heated until melted and shimmery.
The little cutie was stamped in black ink, and colored with markers in bright colors.
Follow the link list below for more inspiration. We'd love for you to leave comments as you go, but that will NOT be how you could win a prize. You must link your creations following the House Mouse and Friends Blog stipulations! Oh, I forgot to mention, EVERYONE is eligible to win!
