The Mulberry Moose


I never thought I would see the day when I would be raving about a stamped image of a moose, and yet that day has now arrived!

I really love the Mulberry Wood range and for some reason I have a particular soft spot for these mooses (is that how you say more than one moose - I kinda wanna say 'mice' but I know that's not right!

Here's a close up of them......



As I have had a few days off work I have had a chance to get some of my stamps out and my printer churning, and here is the first result. The papers arfe all from the Mulberry Wood CD and, I have to admit, I wasn't too sure about them when I first printed them off, but I am really pleased with how the card came together in the end, particularly as it is way out of my colour comfort zone.

I have colured these two buddies with alcohol pens and added a bit of glitter (it's mandatory for snowy scenes!), before putting the card together following a lovely sketch featuring on Cupcake Craft this week.

My son really liked this card, as it is a departure from my usual pinks and pastels, so I think this one may be earmarked for him........one family Christmas card down....a zillion to go!!!

Here are the challenges that I am entering today......

Cupcake Craft - Sketch
Make it Monday
Catch the Bug - Things with Tails
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas
I love Promarkers - Christmas Trees
My Mums Craft Shop - Winter Wonderland
Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes

So that's all from me today. Back soon with some cards featuring a new technique for me.....paper beads. All of a sudden I am a little hooked on these, as I can't belive how a little slip of paper can turn in to a decorative beaded........I  may be a bit gluey fingered but I am certainly happy!!

Until next time.

  11. I love that image! I have never seen a moose (living in South Africa) and always thought them to be rather scary looking, but these are so cute! Thanks for entering the "Things with tails" challenge at Catch the Bug. We at Bugaboo Stamps are looking forward to your entry for the next challenge.
