Benny, a Sleepy Little Mouse



Here's little Benny. I just finished him last night and took pics of him this morning. It's kind of a funny thing with pictures. I tried all different colors of backgrounds and white seemed to look the best. I used to use craft foam sheets  and cloth for the backgrounds and have now figured out that poster board works the best for me. The cloth showed to much texture and the foam sheets weren't quite big enough and the colors were a bit too bright.
Little Benny comes with his cushion, pillow, blankets and wooden shoe.  His little blankets were cut and felted from some wool scarves that I had found at a thrift shop. I really liked their texture. I boiled and dyed them the green color shown.  Little Benny's auction starts Sunday @ 6:45 PM PST.
