Sunnin' Mouse

I've had a lot of extra time to craft lately (my transcription hours have been cut and I'm VERY part-time now....which is totally okay....I think I was burned out from it anyway) and it's been really fun to participate in so many sketch challenges again.  This one is for Sweet Stop Sketch #159 ("Sketch with a Spin") and I added ruffled ribbon for the "spin."



The "Sunnin' Mouse" stamp is by Whipper Snapper Designs and the sentiment is from my MFT "Beach Bum" set. The main image circle is up on foam tape. I paper pierced the scallops with an Ornare piercing template (they stopped selling this one, but I think they should bring it back...I love it!) and then traced in some lines with an orange SU marker. Stickles were added to the sand, sunglasses, and floral shorts.


I want to BE this mouse right now....on the beach...sunning....ahhhhh! :)

Copics: 0, E41, E42, E43, W1, Y32, YR15, YR21, YR24, YG11, YG13, YG17, R00, R02, R81, R83, R85

Hope you have a great Monday!
