Leave It To Nature

 Welcome to my mid month post for Stamping Sensations and We Love Chocolate Baroque challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'AnimalsBirds & Bugs'
I thought for this challenge I would get my neglected House Mouse stamps out, after blowing off  the dust I stamped the image, then I masked the bird and mouse.  I used oxides and water to create the background.  I coloured my image with Faber-Castell pencils.

We have sponsorship this Month from

Stamp Addicts 

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Crafty Creations - #426 -  Anything Goes
2. House Mouse & Friends - #351 - Halloween/Anything Goes

And now onto my second challenge creation for We Love Chocolate Baroque, where the theme is 'Anything Autumn'
For this creation I stamped my leaves form the new stamp set From Nature in morning mist Versafine Clair,  then stamped the splatters from another new stamp set Numerology in  between.  I sprinkled Brusho's over the top and then sprayed with water.

Two prizes this time:-
A £15 voucher to spend at Chocolate Baroque stamps and a Goody Bag, We will also be on the lookout for our next Featured Designer selected from entries using Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Nice to see you HM stamps out again Tracy and this one really is a delight against the inky background. And I really love your treatment of the CB Leaves with the muted appearance.

What a cheeky mouse that is seeking food from the bird. I love how you have made that splattery background, it works so well. I am jealous that you have acquired those new leaf stamps from CB, you have used them to such good effect. I am trying really hard not to order anything new for a while xx
