House Mouse & Friends GDT for August!

Yes, this is what I was hinting at in my last post. I've been invited to be Guest Designer for the House Mouse and Friends Challenge blog for the month of August - and I'm lucky because August has 5 Mondays so that means 3 challenges!

This fortnight the challenge is to create an ATC using, of course, House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies stamps. An ATC has to be 2.5"x3.5" in size, which is actually surprisingly difficult.

I used "What?" and "Boring!" because even though Monica is supposed to be yawning with boredom, I thought she could just as easily be singing so I gave her some notes. She is being watched in awe and bemusement by a Friend. I stamped both images onto the card, coloured them with Copic markers, then masked them off before I misted the top of the card with gold and the bottom with Smooch "limolicious" which are not that much different in colour. The music paper was a tiny scrap, the flowers are Prima, the green gem centres are EK Success and the marble centres from Queen & Co.

And slightly tilted to show the glimmeriness.

Now show us what you can do! Create your own mini masterpiece, and link it up to the House Mouse and Friends challenge blog by Monday August 15th, and you'll be in with a chance to win a fabby prize. Good luck!
