Did you see a Mouse??
One of the new Halloween dies recently released by Die-Versions is the Mouse Sweet Petite. As soon as I saw him, I imagined him in some sort of graveyard scene.
I started creating the background for the tag using the Tim Holtz technique he showed for his August Tag of the Month. In addition to using Frayed Burlap and Pumice Stone, I added a bit of Peeled Paint Distress Stain to the mix. Then I stamped a couple tombstones and the bat sentiment with Frayed Burlap so that it would blend in with the background, rather than upstage my mice.
The mouse was die cut twice and covered with Swanky Grey Sparkle N Soft flock from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Doesn't it give it the look of fur? I can tell you it definitely feels soft and furry to the touch.
Now, to complete the graveyard scene, you have to have something spooky flying about. The Die-Versions Wicked Witch Sweet Petite was the perfect compliment to my mice. She's cut out of fun foam and is flying in front of a cloud streaked full moon (thanks to Picket Fence Distress Stains).
