House Mouse DT - An Aperture Card

My choice at House Mouse this week and I decided on an aperture card as we haven't had that one before.

Please make a card or anything you would like with an aperture (for anyone who is not sure what an aperture is it's basically a hole in your card/project)

This week our sponsor is KLM designs.



The prize on offer from KLM designs is.........
Winner can choose up to 3 images from site. The Images will be emailed to winner directly.

Check out the fab creations the other  DT's  have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!


This is not what I intended, nor even what I started to do.  I was in the supermarket just saying that German cheese is either rubbery or full of holes when a light flashed on in my brain.  Holes - apertures  -  cheese  -  mice!!! Then what a coincidence - my friend Angela sent me an email  with cute images of animals on and this below was one of them. That was it - immediate change of plans.




I used a cream linen cardstock (not the easiest to stamp and colour) and cut my holes with the cuttlebug round nesties. The images are from top left 'Curious Muzzy',  'Jumping for Joy', 'Contented Mudpie', 'Upside Down' and finally the little cutie 'Please'. They are coloured with Copics and the sentiment is Inkadinkado.  The circles I cut from the outside I distressed and attached to the inside.
I left a trail of little mousie feet across both the inside and out.



 

I'm getting better with my new camera, but there is still a lot to be desired. I'm definitely going to read the instruction - sometime - lol.
