finger print mice

I haven't done much in the way of crafting for quite some time now.  I have been very busy trying to have a sort out  in the house since we broke up for the summer. If you can call this summer  that is. Very little chance of getting a sun tan here in the uk . We more likely to get  rust, as it has been so wet.
Anyway  this is a little card I made  yesterday . The mice were created by dabbing  my little finger onto the ink pad and then onto the paper. It's not a new idea by any means but it's quite effective. I used the matching marker to draw in the ears and whiskers. Using a small hole punch, I punched holes for the tails then threaded  some  jute threw threw the holes. I did  colour the jute but rolling it across  the ink pad and smoothed the fibres down  using a little crystal effects and allowed it to dry before threading it through the tail holes. I used the grass stamp from the dinoroar stamp set to stamp the grass.
