Muscle Mouse

Today's card features another of my '5 for £1' charity shop bargain stamps. This one is an old House Mouse stamp called 'Muscle Mouse', which I stamped on to watercolour paper, then coloured using watercolour pencils. I picked some snippets of card in co-ordinating pastel colours, then embossed them using various Cuttlebug embossing folders (Spots & Dots, Zig-zag, Diamond Plate & Stars). I distressed all of the edges a little before assembling it all. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cheering Critters' set by Penny Black.
