Inspiration


Since deciding to make cards for Operation Write Home I have been blog hopping and drawing inspiration from a bunch of different sources.  Today's card is for the Mojo Monday 143 challenge using House Mouse stamps and CTMH papers.

Although this isn't technically the spotlight technique, it's pretty close.  Most House Mouse Images require lots of coloring, so using the spotlight technique allows you to only color one small part and let the rest of it just be.

To compliment the handstitched border, I decided to make french knots out of the same embroidery floss.

I love how the little mouse seems to be scolding the other mouse for picking the petals off the flower.  Hopefully, it brings a smile to your face and to the soldier who will eventually get it.

Until next time,
Becca
