Meet the adorable Happy Mouse by Fabrika Fantasy.I decided to go all CAS as this is something I struggle with and I thought if I used my Polychromos pencils  it may make my little mousie friend stand out.After colouring him with my pencils I fussy cut him leaving a little white around the edges.Setting him to one side I then pierced a border around a piece of white textured card and stamped the greeting.I made my own washi tape by adhering Scotch Magic Matte Tape to my chosen scraps of paper,burnished with a bone folder then trimmed the excess paper away.Next I soaked them in a shallow tray of water.After a few moments I gently rubbed the paper fibre from the back until I was left with the patterned transferred onto the tape.The hardest part was waiting for it to dry!Once they were they were trimmed into pennant shapes.As I was creating a banner hand stitched to the card I stuck them into place with just a little tape pen adhesive as I still wanted a little movement.Other than that they would have to be glued quite firmly into place as unlike shop bought washi tape there is no gum on the back.Black cotton was used to tie in with the ink for the sentiment.Finally I added the mouse with some silicone glue.And that’s that!This will be for my DS2’s birthday in September 🙂
