Happy New Year Party


Happy New Year !  Here's a mousie band to play foot tapping music for you to start the year off right.

I made the background by masking the mice and sponging d'inks darker at the top shaded downwards, then splattering.  I used 'drop-outs' from diecuts for the hats.

Also: Copics, D'inks (sponged & splattered, silver & gold sparkle mister (splattered)
