Merry Mouses

Such a gorgeous image, so I kept it simple.

The green frame is diecut offset to allow room for a ribbon, then splattered with white acrylic paint.  It is actually the outside of a panel die cut out from the inside which is used on another project (so, a snippet).
The image is coloured with copics and placed behind the frame.  The edge of the frame has a finger-wipe of opaldust, which adds a bit of sparkle when the light hits it.

Image: House Mouse
Coloured with Copics
Sentiment stamp: Rosie's Studio
Die: Spellbinders
Also: white acrylic paint, white pigment ink pen, Kindyglitz, Stickles, Opal Dust, WinkOfStella, snippets of ribbon & cord.
