Anything but a card Challenge 31-Anything goes Holiday edition

Its the holiday season and that mean making gifts for family and friends. Challenge 31 at ABAC challenge blog is anything goes, but we like to see what your going to making for gifts.

My project are 2 altered mouse traps. You can get the traps cheap. I got mine at Dollar Tree. They come in a package of 4.

I did a couple of coats of craft paint, As I did not gesso them. After the paint dried I added some shimmer to them with Artist Loft pearlesent water colors. I stamped all the images on white card with Black Memento ink pad. colored them with the pearlesnt waterclors.

This guy is by Inky Antics. I glued him on with Helmar 350 quick dry. A glued iridescent trim that I got from Hobby Lobby around the trap. There was a little extra left haning so i sniped them off and made them as snowballs. the "Merry Christmas" is by Rubberstampede. I just edged it with some red and slid it in the trap.

Santa and crew are by Stamp Rosa. Used the same trim around the mouse trap. Used a light green around the "Merry Christmas"

Some come play along and also see what other DT members are doing.

Happy Holidays!!
