Fence Falling

Welcome to the Stampendous Design Team weekly challenge. This week our theme is "Mousey Mischief!". You'll see lots of great creations with our wonder House-Mouse Designs stamps all week long! These little mice are sure to make you smile.

My mischievous little mice are called "Fence Falling", and are featured in the July 2015 Stampendous Catalog.  If you haven't seen the new catalog yet, you can view it online at the Stampendous website, click here.  Don't they just look like they are having a ball playing this game! I colored them with Chameleon markers, then mounted them on a fall background that I created using the Creative Palette and acrylic paints.

Step 1:  Fold a 7" x 10" piece of dark brown cardstock in half to form a top-fold card

Step 2:  Use the Creative Palette, acrylic paints and a brayer to create a fall colored background on White Mixed Media paper, dry well, cut to 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", swipe the Delicata ink pad across the background, attach to the front of the card

Step 3:  Stamp the Fence Falling on a  4" x 5 7/8" piece of white cardstock and color with Chameleon pens, mat on a dark brown mat 4 1/8" x 6 1/8"

Step 4:  Add the green ribbon along the right side of the card, gather it in the middle with a small piece of Jute

Step 5:  Use foam tape to add the image to the card front
