Sweet Christ-mouse Wishes


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Deedee’s Digis  as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Once I spotted the adorable Merry-Christmouse by Deedee’s Digis I just knew I had to make another card for Christmas….2016!He’s been printed onto Neenah Desert Storm card then coloured with Polychromos Pencils and highlighted with a white Soufflé pen.Some Chunky White Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel has been melted around the edges.The same treatment has been given to the sentiment which is one of a few also included in the set.The candy cane embellishment started out as a plain wooden one.I applied a coat of Gesso over it then coloured the red stripes in with a permanent marker.What has managed to elude the camera is the added shine of  a couple of layers of clear embossing powder…never mind,I know it’s there 🙂 To complete the rustic feel given by the kraft and checks I tied a little jute button twine into a bow around it.
