Return of the Mousetrap

Over at Out of a Hat Creations, they are running another mousetrap challenge with a free theme.  I covered the board with tissue wrap, and stamped my favourite image onto a piece of white card and then mounted it onto a piece of kraft card.  The mini tag is from the same stamp and coloured with frayed burlap distress ink.  I added a couple of brads and a piece of ribbon.

That's absolutely great, I like it very much. You used very beauatiful stamps. That's one thing I wanted to do for ages but didn't get around to doing it ... perhaps that could be a resolution and a plan for next year :-)
I like it very much how you're experimenting a lot recently, it's very exciting to follow.
Best, Suzanne

Third time lucky--I keep trying to comment on your blog Sam and the posts

go into cyber land.

This is a terrific mousetrap and so pleased that you managed to use all of

it-I know that is difficult to do as I did try once and failed.

Love the stamping.

Great to have you with us at the Hatters for this challenge

Best wishes Chrissie xx

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
