mousey mousey weeeeeeeeeeee!

I'm always on the look out for something new to try so when I saw a challenge for a centre step card I thought I'd have a go. Now I did get in a bit of a muddle and it took me a while but I got there in the end. 

I decided to use my one and only house mouse stamp I really should get some more they are on my wish list along with some gruffles and many others but short on pennies due to a run of things breaking down.

I coloured the image with promarkers , the flowers I wanted to tone with the red on the twine but didn't want it to be too bright so I put some on acetate and used a water brush to paint the flowers I'm quite pleased how it turned out.

The buttons are some I had in my stash and I thought the leaves looked similar to those the mice were using and I just had to use the glitter buttons.

The twine is from whiff of joy and I thought some bows just added the finishing touch.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

The crafty cafe-anything goes
House mouse and friends-anything goes with twine
