House Mouse bathtime

Got these decoupage sheets from Joanna Sheen's online shop. I love House Mouse images and have a few stamps but this was my first venture into House Mouse decoupage. Normally I really enjoy decoupage but this image is the easiest one - the pack comes with some really tricky and intricate ones which will certainly test my patience :) Accidentally snipping off little tails and paws will upset me I know :(

Having said that, they are sooo cute it's worth trying to Percy-Vere!!

I highlighted the 'floating into the air bubbles' with Anita's Glaze and mounted the decoupaged image onto Core'dinations light brown card (I love these packs of card, from QVC, never stuck for a yet!), then onto a cream linen card and just topped it off with a bit of perfectly matching ribbon from my stash. The ribbon comes from Hobbycraft, it has silver glitter swirls on and they do quite a variety of colours. The only thing is, it's wired, but pulling the thin wire out from each edge is easy and worth the little bit of extra time it takes.

Hi Karen - pleased you like the little chaps. Some of the designs are taking ages to cut out - little bits of paper flying everywhere! But, hopefully worth it and some of the finished cards will find their way into my next consignment for your charities. Di x
