House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Black and White




              House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge   Black and White 

This card was very easy to make...basically all you need to do is stamp an image and slap it on some paper. I did stamp a small little hello friend sentiment on the mouse stationary.  Easy!

I used one of my very first House Mouse stamps (back in the days when Stampa Rosa made them)  I used my silhouette to cut out a postage stamp card base so I could carry on the  stamp theme! Very fun and very fast. I actually made a couple of these to send out!  This felt a bit like cheating just adding a "naked" image LOL...It was hard not to pull out the copics and do a little coloring! But hey, that might be cheating a wee bit LOL...I almost did it........hee hee

This is a challenge you all could find time for! Give it a whirl!!!

Take a peek over at our HM&F's Blog and see what the rest of the team has created! You will also get to greet our new teamies that will be joining in over the next several challenges.

Thanks for stopping in today. Scroll down to see my Outlines post----a pretty blingy Valentine!

These stamps are timeless. This one is as cute now as ever. Because they're so well drawn, they look good even without coloring. That must have been hard, though. Great job, Sue!

Cute, I like the postage border.. it goes fab with the image.

Sandy said...

That's what I like - a stamped image slapped on paper. Now Sue that works when you have some talent - I slap all day long and it doesn't look that good!!
