The Mousies have Peanut M&M's not Jelly Beans

Next, welcome to Challenge #80 at House Mouse & Friends  - we are going to create a project in MONOCHROME style...These are challenging, but be sure to give it a try and join us again this week!!!

We have another FAB prize to give away from our generous SPONSOR - Simon Says Stamp -




All you have to do is create a project using any House Mouse & Friends Image, make it MONOCHROME and upload it right here by Oct 24th to be eligible!



Well you all know me - I'm a brown girl!! When monochrome is required I automatically head for the browns although I keep promising myself I'll try something different. I've coloured my image - 'It's bean fun' with Copics, although in this case I'll have to rename it 'It's peanut M&M fun' I think as they don't do chocolate jelly beans. The backing papers are a digi download - can't tell from whom as my computer has just jumbled things up again and I really don't know what belongs where!!! The frame for the image is made from the Spellbinder's foliage frame die set, the flowers punched from a Nellie Snellon punch and emboss set and the leaves with a Crealies die and I added some seed bead to the flower centers and gold stickles around the flower edges. 


Thanks for stopping by, have a great day and a great week..........

Yum! Peanut M&Ms are sooooo much better than non-chocolate jelly beans! These guys have good taste! But, wow GF! Your coloring of this one is beyond amazing. Just stunning. The candy looks good enough to eat, very realistic. You're definitely a Copic guru! Awesome card and love the added embellies, they match sooo perfectly! hugz, Mary

I too love browns but these are lusciously tactilebwith the way you have put them together. Thought those flowers were bought until I read your post - superb creations. Sympathize with the computer - my poorly Dell is having some expensive tlc by an engineer in the morning - next time it will be smashed up so nobody can pinch the info on the hard drive.
