House Mouse Challenge #51 - Songs/Lyrics


This week's challenge was to let a song inspire you...so my inspiration is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. What cute star - this little house mouse is. I finally sewed on a card again too! I was worried because I haven't done it in ages, but the stitches came out pretty straight. The red paper is embossed once, brayered on the back with white ink, and then embossed again. I like the texture it gives the paper to double emboss it, and the double embossing seems to press the ink into the paper so it looks like it's part of it rather than sitting on top.
