Dream, dream ,dream.......................................

Back again (hopefully!! as it's yet another scheduled post) with this week's card for the challenge at The Octopode Factory  and this week it's animals.  I used the digi which is probably my favourite Octopode image which is the Dormouse from Alice in Wonderland - I just think he's so adorably cute!!!



Just for a change, I decided to use Distress Inks and Stains to colour in the image and the background, with a touch of resist embossing as well!  I also added some paper piecing for his hat and used part of a dictionary page with sleep-related definitions. 



I highly recommend a visit to the The Octopode Factory as there is a huge variety of original and wonderfully quirky digis available for sale and then you can join in the weekly challenge too!!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Love what you did,The background looks great and fab colours. That little doormouse is also my favourite as well. I think we have similar ideas, hehehehe as we often choose the same image for the TOFF challenges,:)
