Cozy Mice

     I'm not sure how a cat person can also be so taken by cute mice but I am, especially those I find on Penny Black stamps.   Hmmm, now that I think of it, I love Penny Black cats, too.  :-D  Anyway, today felt like a 'cute mice' day so how's this one?


     This time I stamped on matte photo paper so there's a very slight shine to it, but it can still be colored with alcohol inks.  I used a combination of Copics and ProMarkers and, truthfully, the ProMarkers work a bit better on the photo paper.

     I cut it and the two other 'layers' with rectangle dies; the smaller one (red) from QuicKutz and the largest ones from Spellbinders.  Those really aren't layers because each rectangle is inlaid into the larger one around it so the entire image piece is only one layer, not four.

     I turned it and adhered it to some deep red CS (on an angle), then added the red ribbon before putting it onto the card base.  The wreath was in my stash of Christmas embellies.  The sentiment is also from Penny Black.
