Monochrome House Mouse

This is my second post today - if you are looking for my Bearly Mine Inspiration card you can find it HERE.

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is: Do Not Colour Image hosted by America - this doesn't mean use only black and white, it means you can have colour(s) everywhere on your project, or no colours at all, just DO NOT COLOUR in/on the image itself.  Just make sure you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image to join in.

I've used a fabulous digi stamp from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Triple CD, I have cheated a little and added a little splash of blue but it is not on the actual image it is a decoupage layer.

The papers are from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Monochrome paper pack and the sentiment is a Pink Petticoat sentiment cut out with a Spellbinders Banner die, I have inked it whilst still in the die.  I punched a border with an EK Success border punch and added some black pearls from my stash.

This fortnight we are sponsored by:

Simon Says Stamp is generously giving away a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of some of their Premium Dye Ink Pads to one very lucky player


Marianne Design

AMERICA will also be sending a special prize to one lucky player.

 I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar Challenge 106 - Use a Banner
Sweet Pea Stampers - Thinking of You/Missing You/Just Because
Aud Sentiments Challenge 112 - Thinking of You type sentiment
Crafting from the Heart Challenge 31 - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays Challenge 219 - Decorate Your Card Inside and Out
Oldie But A Goodie Challenge - Black & White + 1 (Papers and Banner Die over 6 months old)

Thank you for popping in today, don't forget to take a look at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and join in with our Do Not Colour Image challenge.

I really like the theme of this challenge. A non colored image can look really beautiful, I think I've only tried it once, by stamping onto a DP, I loved how it turned out. Your little touch of color is brilliant with this image, and your card looks fab!

Hi Pauline, love how only the paint is colored, of course paint would not be clear!!!!! Cute image and those background papers are wonderful.


America said...

HI Pauline. Fabulous way to follow my "NO COLOR" theme and still add a little bit of color with a brilliant idea. I love it.

nwilliams6 said...

Fun challenge - I may have to come play. Your image is wonderful and I love how you colored only that tube of paint. Cute card my friend. I would say that I wish they would come visit and help me color, but last time they came to visit it wasn't so much fun (LOL). Cute! Hugz!
