Happy Monday to all of you! I hope for those of you who work this week, that your week flies by, and for everyone else, I hope you have a great week too!
It's time for another House Mouse Monday Challenge! This week's challenge was just that for me . . . a BIG challenge! This week it is simply called "Vintage". As those who visit me often, you NEVER see "vintage" in my work. So, I didn't have a clue what I was going to do. I have 107 House Mouse stamps, and I looked at everyone of them scratching my head. My first thought was to stamp one of the images in sepia ink but that didn't work really well. I finally came up with something that I'm sure everyone who sees it will be scratching their heads over. Here it is:
There is something about this House Mouse image that reminds me of "vintage". This will come as no surprise to those of you who know me, but I love Halloween, and as a child, it was such a fun holiday for me. It has supplied me with a rich treasure chest of wonderful memories. The scene above reminds me of a Halloween coloring book that I had when I was 6 or 7. It was all Halloween scenes and I loved coloring in it. So, anyway, that's my explanation for this being "vintage", and I'm sticking to it! LOL
I created the above scene using some new stamps from Stampscapes. I LOVE these stamps and will definitely be getting some more. The House Mouse stamp is from a clear Halloween stamp set. The ground, sky, and moon were all sponged using Distress Inks. I am starting to be a HUGE fan of the distress inks. They are so versatile and so great at what they do. When they dry, they leave such a smooth, blotchless look.
If you have some time, jump over to see what my Teamies have done with this challenge (HERE), and if you are inclined, play along. You have two weeks to do this challenge, so give it a try. I would love to see what you come up with.
OK, that's it for this post. I'm working on Wednesday's post and I can tell you, there will be NO Halloween cards. LOL I don't want to burn myself out. Thanks for stopping by. It is so appreciated. See you on Wednesday!
Hugs to all of you!
