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!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
