Mouse Perfection


The challenge at House Mouse and Friends is always about the Mouses, Hoppers or Gruffies, and this time the challenge is Anything Goes with optional Something Cosy.  

Check it out here:  housemouse-challenge

I chose this wonderful image of mousie snuggled into the flower looking cosy and relaxed.  I would join her if I was small enough, but I would probably take a little book with me!

I coloured the image, masked it, sponged and stencilled, then trimmed it and added a strip of cobweb to one side along with a narrow strip of silver card.  The sentiment is stamped and layered four layers thick with the same wine coloured card, and pearls added.  I like how the deckle edge of the sentiment echoes the edges of the petals.

Image: House Mouse     

Die: Spellbinders

Stencil: Artist Cellar

Senti: magazine freebie

Also: Copics, D'Is, white pen, cobweb, pearls.
