House Mouse Monday

Don't Stress...
Actually....DO Stress....Distress that is

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #69 - Distressing
Thanks go out to Mary for today's challenge idea. Distress anything on your projects and include at least 1 House Mouse, Gruffies or Happy Hoppers image. We have a great prize this time around. Git-R-Done!!! Go on over to the HM & Friends Monday Challenge Blog to get all the details.

My friend Cynthia let me stamp a bunch of HM images from her collection. Many of the stamps in her collection are limited edition and hand numbered. This one on my card is from her collection. It's called Fantastic. SUPER CUTE!!!

I did soft distressing around the edges of the blue cardstock layer. The edges of the card base layer is sponged with Distress inks. All coloring is done with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol. I also used a Clear Spica Glitter Pen on the fan...but didn't catch the sparkle on my pics.

Have fun stressing.....I mean distressing!

Oh Man, youve got to teach me to color with those gamsol pencils woman! Actually, teach little ole me to color like you already teach everyone else to color might be nice. :) This card is is FAN-TAS-TIC!!!! I seriously had this image out to use with the FAN verse, but decided against it because I would have had to color not 1, but 4 mice!! LOL!! You know how I feel about coloring! LOL! Thank goodness I didnt use this stamp because you blew this one out of the water GF!! :) I love this!! Awesome gentle distressing!! Way to go!!
