House Mouse Designs® with Friends Across the "Pond"

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...

Those rascally mice are at it again! This time they're stealing all of the cookies in a well-executed plan of thievery in the House Mouse Designs® "Cling Cookie Bandits"*. Somewhere, I'm sure, is a wanted bulletin, because who wouldn't want these critters?

The image has been stamped in black ink, and colored with markers, and in an attempt to mimic the green of depression glass, the jar has been colored and shaded in greens, brushed over the surface with Translucent Embossing Paste*, and is casting a reflection through the "glass" onto the delightful wallpaper. The wallpaper has been achieved by masking off the image before placing the Dreamweaver Pattern Background* stencil over the panel, and ink-stenciling in brown using a large stencil brush. Sprinkles of Stampendous "Spoonful of Rust"* were added to the completed card and heated to "encrust" them all together, suggesting a mess of cookie crumbs left behind with footprints to be collected as evidence by the crime lab.

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!

Please post will go live on Saturday, April 2nd, for the Woodware Witterings blog; but the rest on this list will not go live until Monday, April 4th.

*Items with an asterisk can be purchased online at Stampendous, or through stores listed HERE in the USA, or through the Stencil Specialists in Australia HERE. Links in blog post are for those shopping through Woodware UK's Stockists.
