I can't believe this is the first time that I've inked up this stamp. How cute is it?? I love the little baker's expression and of course the towering pile of sweet treats. I really had fun coloring it up. To achieve my "mouse" look, I combined the following Copics in this order: E51, highlight with E53, blend with E51, add highlights along the edges with C3 & C5, blend entire image with C1 and finally go back over it all again with E51. It gives it a nice dirty tone that it perfect for sweet little rodents, LOL. The plate of treats was begging to be cut out and raised with a dimensional. I then added a few sparkles with Stardust Stickles. I followed Mojo 140 for the layout! Hope you're having a wonderful day!
