After taping down my stencil and masking off my paper I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Festive Berry. Deciding that brick's weren't usually glossy I settled on regular embossing paste for more of a matte finish.
Simon Says Stamp's Circle on a Line die makes the perfect mouse hole! Two eye's staring out of the darkness works perfectly for the fabulous Mama Elephant "hello" die sentiment. Really wish I had a question mark for this hello! Instead I grabbed a Lawn Fawn Heart die to finish it off!
