House Mouse Halloween


Here is a card I have just made for House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. The theme was Halloween and as I don't have a House Mouse Halloween stamp I used this cute cologne stamp, though I have changed the label to read 'eau de pumpkin.' Not sure which mouse this actually is, Mudpie????

My mouse is coloured with marker and stardust pens. After colouring the bottle orange to resemble a pumpkin I used crystal glaze to make it more dimensional and shiny. The Halloween cat and pumpkin lantern papers are from Joanna Sheen's Cardmakers Year CD. The black background was embossed using a Cuttlebug folder and to finish off my card I added punched cats and 2 large staples coloured with an orange marker.

Love your card! How brilliant to create an 'eau de pumpkin' with matching bottle! I'm sure not a single famous couturier thought of that one before!
