House Mouse Challenge No. 21 ~ Color Challenge (Monet Style HM!) :)

Our Challenge this week is a color challenge.  The colors are listed using Stampin’ Up! colors, just because that is common on Splitcoast, however, ANY brand that matches closely is fine for the challenge.  HERE is a listing of the colors to see what they look like so you can match what you have with these:

Cameo Coral (a slight peachy pink)
Old Olive (a rich olive green)
Night of Navy (navy blue in its finest!)

You can also use any neutrals (as in gray or brown to color the mice, hoppers, or gruffies – and white or vanilla), but please have some of all three colors on your card somewhere (cardstock, ink, designer paper, embellishments).

Here’s my FIRST card!   (Yep – TWO cards!)

Ribeting time

 The name of this stamp is Leap Frog, appropriately ~ featuring Amanda, Maxwell and Mudpie.  I just love the look on poor Mudpie‘s face, wondering what is wrong with his frog who isn’t moving!   Notice the fly on the end of Maxwell‘s stick…it’s highlighted with Stickles.

My 2nd card….was ALOT of work!!  

Pool Party

This one is an older Stampa Rosa image, called Pool Party.  Here’s a closeup view of the party:
