House Mouse Challenge 8

I found this challenge somewhat difficult and I don't have any Halloween stamps or any House Mouses that look like they're in a Halloween situation - so my poor little Happy Hopper got himself detached from his balloons again. But I did substitute them with two hand drawn 'friendly' bats carrying him away from the inferno. The 'flame' paper is a vellum so I placed a further three bats behind the vellum to try to create some perspective. I stamped a cobweb in each corner and used the brads to attach the vellum to the card.
This is not a brilliant card, but it was just so much fun to do.Stamp: House Mouse - Balloon Journey

Here's Mine

Creative! I love that its the bats the bunny is hanging from rather than baloons. Very creative, congrats on last weeks win also!

What a gorgeous card! I think it's BRILLIANT how you used a 'regular' HM and transformed it into a Halloween scene with perspective! Love it!

I have a Tilda stamp that has been used in this way - I can't even remember what the original Tilda is holding anymore.
I love the bats behind the vellum - great effect. It's a fun card - I think kiddies would love it.

This is fabulous! What a clever idea!!! Love it! It is a brilliant card...but that is a great quote..."This is not a brilliant card, but it was fun"~that's exactly how I felt about my HM challenge card, but I love that my 15 yr old son helped with it! Your blog inspires me!

Ann said...

worried about you - no computer in one area and no heating in another what on earth is going on?

very puzzled! Don't know what you needed help with but whatever it is I will help if I can. Not good on boilers though I rely on British Gas.
