House Mouse - That Natural Feeling!




"Our challenge this week is :~ Natural!! This could be adding something natural to your project such as hessian etc, use neutral colours..........the choice is yours " - Great theme for House Mouse Challenge - I love natural colours.

I used the back of a note pad for the cardstock, stamped flourishes using Versa Fine ink, Mudpie and his Grapes!! was coloured with watercolours. I added some straw sticks embellished with a wooden flower. The stamp in the corner is by Rhona Farrer. Prima Flowers and some string tied to a saftey pin were added to the opposite corner. Tiny buttons and lace to finish.
