Cupcake Mice

I love this digital image by Designed 2 Delight! Such a fun little garden party scene! I experimented some more with the watercolor pencils and markers to shade my image. I used some of the Dreamy collection from My Mind's Eye, this paper is so great because the glitter is already on the cardstock!

After coloring my image, I used liquid glass for the centers of the flowers, rhinestones for the mice noses and cherry, and a black pearl for the little bee head. I liked how much dimension all these little details added!

Here are the challenges that inspired me:
Designed 2 Delight - use the image of the week
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #99 - sketch
Scrapbookaholic by Abby - use orange and an animal
The Paper Variety - use flowers
For Fun Challenges - use any 3: pink, blue, purple, green, and yellow

Hi Rayna! How cute is this little image! I LOVE IT! Your coloring is perfect and I love how you did their little tiny noses! It makes them pop! The colors in your papers are gorgeous (I think I tell you that everytime I visit...sorry but they are)! I love how you mix them up and combine the different patterns. I just can't seem to make it work. Mine look like a mess when I try but your are so beautiful! Ok, sorry for my rambling tonight! Good luck with your challenges!
