Mouse Wreath

Hi!  I made this card on the weekend for the Wreath challenge at HLS Christmas Challenge, the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and the Holiday Challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More

This is a NBUS stamp from Your Next Stamp and I stamped and colored it using Copics.  Stupidly, I then got a black glaze pen to highlight the eyes and it splodged!  To fix it, I re-stamped the image, colored the mice heads and fussy-cut them out and adhered them over the splodgy ones.  Problem solved!  

The sentiment was stamped in black and clear embossed and I went around the image with blue Copics to make it stand out.  The poinsettias, berries and bow were all colored with clear Wink of Stella and the center of the poinsettias were colored with Stickles.

Thanks for visiting.

Stamps:  Sending Joy (Your Next Stamp), Layered Wreath (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid, Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White
