House-Mouse Challenge Blog Hop

Hello there House-Mouse fans! I've got exciting news! We are teaming up the amazing Stampendous Design Team plus the Woodware Craft Collection Design Team (distributors of Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils in the UK) AND The Stencil Specialists (distributors of Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils in Australia) for a HUGE Blog Challenge Blog Challenge Hop! FUN STUFF!

This special challenge hop will continue on for 2 weeks! There will be daily posts and inspiration, so make sure to check in daily for loads of great fun and more chances to win.

House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #216 - Use Stencils with your House-Mouse Designs images. (Or you play along with the challenge and blog hop using our alternate theme option of "anything goes".)

For all the challenge, hop and prize details, visit the HMFMCB.

I used a great Dreamweaver Stencil from Stampendous. It's called Peacock Background. The House-Mouse stamp I used is a Happy Hopper image called Relaxing Bubbles.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Markers. I also added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens on top of bubbles and on the ground under the tub.

For the background, I masked off the bottom of a stencil to leave a white space. I used 4 different colors of Dylusions Ink Sprays on the Peacock Feathers Background Stencil. After the inks were dry, I placed the cleaned off stencil back over the panel and then spritz with a clear shimmer spray. Really turned out fun! Once the stencil panel was completely dry...I diecut with a stitched rectangle die.

You can find all the links to our Blog Hop over on the main House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog or use my list below:
