For my card I’ve used the totally adorable Mouse In Tea Cup (Cecil) and coloured him with ProMarkers with added white gel pen highlights.To add a little shading under and on the cup I used the Tea Green ProMarker and Blender.I find this gives a softer more subtle colour than using a grey. For a little extra shine I went over the tea cup with a glaze pen.Here’s a close up to show the detail :

I actually tuned the sketch on it’s side so I could incorperate the eyelets onto the edge of the image piece.I chose a gingham background and lacy edged dies to got with the country feel of the image.
