Bags and Boxes....
That's the name of this week's House Mouse Challenge and it's hosted or sponsered by the Cutting Cafe. The challenge is to make a bag or box with HM being the focal point. I make my own boxes, etc. quite often - but thought I would give this a try and so I actually bought like 3 I think, simply because they were a little different from what I have done. Pop over and see what you think - they also have digital images or stamps if you will - pretty cool actually!
So, as I said before I'm somewhat limited on my HM stamps although thank you to Sara and Jennifer, because of them I have a few more to pick from. I was going through my images and pulled out a couple then went searching for just the right paper. As I'm going through my papers I run across one I've had for awhile Tuscany Garden by BoBunny, and I don't know if it's still available. Anyway as I come across this paper, I realize I have an image of one of the mice sleeping in a sunflower and here are sunflowers all over this paper - perfect!! So, here it is - I used a combination of watercolor pencils and prismacolor pencils - I know - weird, but it all worked. For the center of the flower I used Cinnamon Stickles.
Here's a side shot
Now I just have to figure out what to fill it with and who to give it to - this style actually comes with printable small candy labels, hmmmm....
