House Mouse Challenge #211 Zodiac Sign Connection Leeuw

My favourite wild animals are the BIG CATS! So for my 4th entry fot the House Mouse Zodiac sign challenge I made a birthday card for a Lion (22 Jul - 21 Aug). Lions have a big appetite, so I picked the mouse that has eaten his belly full on a cupcake. He is enjoying the party dressed up as a lion. First I coloured the stamp (with Distress ink) and covered it with liquid masking film before I started with te background. For the background I used 4 colours of Brusho powder, sprankled it around the image and sprayed some water on it. It is always tricky to pull off the masking layer (don't want to rip off some paper with it). To turn the mouse into a lion I took a piece of vellum paper, punched out a circle and cut the hair lines with a scissor. To make it more orange I put some distress ink with water on it. Because I made it wet and dried it with a heating tool the paper curls up a bit. I cut a part of the stamp out with a hobby knife so I could fit the lion hair around the mouse. To finish the costume off I also gave him a hair piece on his tail. For the sentiment I punched out some banners in different colours, it's party time!
