Mousterpiece Makers

HEY HEY HEY all you House Mouse Lovers!!! It's that time!

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #80 - MONOCHROME
What is monochrome?

Monochrome is a term generally used to describe painting, drawing, design, or photograph in one color or shades of one color.

Our challenge this weeks was Natascha's idea. Any color works...just remember to use at least 1 House Mouse or Friends image on your project. Check out all the challenge prize details.....AND see all the wonderful projects the design team came up with HERE.



Isn't this stamp SOOOOOOO CUTE!!! It's another fun image I stamped from my friend Cynthia.

All my coloring is done with French Grey Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.



The sentiment is from A Muse. It's one of my favorite sayings. I love how it looks 3D embossed. Stamp white ink first and then black on the top...but shift over just a tad.

I hope you can join us for this fun challenge.
