Wot no stamping????

Sometimes I just love a bit of decoupage.....especially when it is as cute as the lovely House Mice. I tend not to buy preprinted decoupage as, if I like it, I don't use it as then it will be gone (sad, I know!) really that's a waste of money isn't it? However, that problem is quickly solved when you can print stuff off of a CD and suddenly the world is your oyster!

This particular image is from the House Mouse CD and inspiration book from Joanna Sheen. I have to say, the book is a real treat as I could sit looking at it for ages - lol!

As you can see  from the close up below, there must be 6 or 7 layers on this particular image so it takes a little while, but it gets me away from that felling of 'cheating' if I haven't actually stamped and coloured the image my self.......I am The Little Stamper after all!!

As you can see, I have used lots of other textured goodies from my stash which I though fitted the theme - ribbon, lace and buttons, and this turned out to be a really enjoyable project for me. :o)

I would like to enter this card in to a few challenges:

The Ribbon Girl - Use a Button

Papertake - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you all have a great weekend.
