Sleeping in Violets with House Mouse



Greetings! I am excited about the next 2 weeks, as the Stampendous team is hopping along with the House Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog. This hop is a little different from our other hops...commenting will not enter you to win prizes, you'll have to play along and make a project to try to win! You can enter your project on the House Mouse and Friends blog post HMFMC #215. The challenge is to "Use Stencils."

I used Violet Nap for my card, and I watercolored it. This image is just sooooo sweet.

I used 3 stencils for the card, and 2 Fitted Frames. The purple sprayed stencil is the Mosaic Swirls. The Green is the Ginkgo Bough, and on the purple background, I used Crusade. I used various inks and sprays to get the stencil images on to the cardstock.

I also added a bit of washi tape. I like putting various patterns together that wouldn't necessarily go together. I think they work here though. For full details, please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog, as well as the House Mouse & Friends Blog. Plus,  there's lots of folks posting along with me today...their links are all below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
