House Mouse Christmas

This week's House Mouse Challenge theme is All About Christmas. Fun!
I love this image, the expressions on their faces are so cute. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil. Added Liquid Pearls to the "fuzzy" part of their hats, and Waterfall Stickles to the snow around them. Cut out the image and attached it to the acetate that I had run though the CB Snowflakes folder. The background DP is from the Memory Box Winterberry pad. I added some of the Waterfall Stickles to the hills on the DP for some more dimension. I then attached the acetate to the background DP and then the whole thing onto the red CS base card. IRL it looks dimensional, with the mousies in the foreground the snow-covered hills and trees in the background.


Stamps: House Mouse Leaf-ing The Tree Farm.
Paper: Memory Box, The paper Studio.
Ink: None.
Accessories: Prismacolor pencils/baby oil, Cuttlebug, acetate, Stickles, Liquid Pearls
