A Washi Waltzingmouse

Hope you're looking forward to the end of week - one of the things I miss about working is that Friday feeling, when you know you've got 2 whole days off before starting at work again on a Monday! Am I being ungrateful when I say every day feels like a Monday sometimes....?!

This week's Waltzingmouse sketch is by Jean Martin:

I'm a bit over using the traditional colours for Christmas so thought I'd use some Japanese washi papers I picked up recently.  I wish I'd used the pink for the ribbon strips and only a small amount of black for the strip going across. The black looks a little harsh in the photo.  Nothing like doing a self-critique eh?! The washi paper rose took forever...I thought it would be easier with softer paper but it actually made it really fiddly. And I don't do fiddle!

Have a great weekend, thanks for popping by,
