Angel Mouse

I have a Christmas card to share today, using'Angel Henry Mouse' by Whiff of Joy. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some shimmer to his wings and halo using a Sakura Stardust pen. For the background, I've used plainish BasicGrey papers, from several different pads ('Granola', 'Max & Whiskers' & 'Hopscotch'), and embossed them using Sizzix folders ('Snowglobe', 'Powdered Sugar' & 'Snowflakes'). I distressed all of the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs & Cuttlebug dies, and the pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Here's a better view of Henry's shimmery wings:
