2RedBananas and House Mouse Challenge

Good Morning! Today I'm sharing two cards that I made for the House Mouse Challenge. 2RedBananas is sponsoring the challenge this week. It's a sketch challenge and both the 2RedBananas dt and the House Mouse Challenge dt have examples for you to see - lots of eye candy :) You can see all the details here.

These little guys are just so much fun to play with. This one uses October Afternoon papers. I added candlelight shimmerz to the lemonade and to the flower.

Stamps: Splish Splash a Citus Bath
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Paper: October Afternoon - Hometown collection , Bazzill
Other: Shimmerz - candlelight, May Arts ribbon, primas, gems, nesties, pop dots, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits

For this one, I used one of the Gruffies stamps. I also used my Hero Arts "hello You" stamp. I LOVE this sentiment and I think it works so well with the magnifying glass :)

Stamps: Finding Friendship, Hero Arts - hello You
Other: Nesties, Pop dots, primas, gems, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits

The House Mouse Challenges are always so much fun! We would LOVE for you to play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

I love how the design worked so well for both of your cards -- they're darling! Those images are so stinkin' cute and your flower embellies look great. And even though I can't see the Shimmerz, I can imagine how pretty it is. tfs
