House Mouse -27 Chipboard

The The House Mouse challenge this week is - "All about Chipboard chipboard". You can make anything you like as long as you use some chipboard and a minimum of one HM or friend image.
All I had in chipboard were flowers and some Basic Grey pieces (gorgeous but not suitable). I went to my local shop and all they had were - flowers!! So flowers it had to be. This card has sat on my bookcase all week, and everyone who has seen it has laughed -
so at least it has a comic aspect to it!!
I covered the chipboard flowers with Basic Grey Ambrosia papers, sanded and then inked the edges. I cut flowers with the EK Success punches and put the little mousies heads in the middle. I used the Spring Blossoms House Mouse stamp (coloured with watercolours) as they had petals round their faces and cut out Mudpie and Monica as they seemed to be looking at one another. I use Basic Grey Boxer chipboard pieces as the stems and finished it with another flower with an Inkadinkado sentiment middles and two little buttons on the side.

Materials Bazzill BC : DP - Basic Grey Ambrosia & Boxer chipboard stems : EK Succes flower punches : Spring Blossoms HM image : Rowney watercolours : Inkadinkado sentiment : Rest from stash
