My Mollie mice have all reached their new homes safely so I'm posting the family portrait I took before they 'left home'. Meet Flo, Miss Daisy and Florence. Mollie Mouse has stayed at home to help me in my craft space. They were quite fiddly to make but I enjoyed myself, especially knitting the little cardigans and sewing the dresses. I think if I make any more I'll have to rethink the pattern and make some alterations. I really need to make putting the heads and bodies together a bit easier.
this design I found on Little Birdie Secrets a while ago. I die cut my butterflies in sugar paper. Did you use it in school art lessons? I bought a thick pad of the paper many years ago and I'm still using it! I love the soft muted shades and as long as you don't want to use anything very detailed, clear stamps work well on it. I used a reverse polka dot stamp and matching Distress Inks here.
Supplies: PTI butterfly die, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Stamps: PTI Friendship Jar (I used the polka dot jar filler), Think Big Favorites #2
