Little Mouse

Prismacolor pencils were used to color the image and baby oil for blending.
The flower the little mouse is holding was cut out and mounted on a 1/8” punched circle to create dimension.

A plastic stipple brush was used to add texture to the solid colors.

I used the deco pink pencil to add shading to the larger pink flowers. All the flowers were embossed, large pink from the back and the smaller ones from the front. The black and yellow centers were cut with the Cuttlebug Tiny Tags die or a Sizzix button die. I cut or punch smaller pieces and place them over the holes for cutting. The flowers were assembled with Aleene’s tacky glue and to pick up the small centers I use a large stick pin - dip in the glue, touch the back of the circle to pick up, place on the flower, press down with the finger and pull the pin away, slide into position if needed.

Stickles was applied to all flower centers and the flower and circles on the designer paper.

The black nailheads were attached with Aleene’s Paper Glaze.
After attaching the strips of paper to the insert and envelope I embossing double lines just above the paper with the Scor-Pal.
