Cuddly Mice

The last of my promarkers arrived last Monday so I now have the full set and I'm having lots of fun using them. I originally coloured in the image on this card a couple of weeks ago whilst I was practicing with my blender and I threw it into a waste pile because the image bled and I'd only blended roughly. (At least I've improved now - see my Skater Ian card)

Anyway, two weeks on, whilst doing a clear out today, I came across it again and saw it with fresh eyes. I actually like the way it had bled and was roughly blended because it looks like fuzzy fur. So, I made a card with it.

Although this isn't a LOTV image, the LOTV challenge this week is 'Animals', so I'm going to enter it into their challenge. Hope that's okay ladies.
I took this second picture to show the different layers on the card.
For those of you thinking the layout looks familiar, I used the sketch at the copics challenge because I liked the look of it. I didn't use copics so it obviously isn't entered into that challenge - but it is a fab sketch to work with.
