House Mouse color challenge

I made this card for the House Mouse challenge #21, to use Cameo Coral (a slight peachy pink) Old Olive (a rich olive green) and Night of Navy (navy blue in its finest!). I don't have these Stampin Up colors but I think I matched them pretty close.

I just love this image entitled "Mouse Drops". Using my Copics, I colored the mouse on top of the medicine bottle with E42, shaded with E43. For the sick little guy, his blanket is R22, shaded with R24. And he is E01, shaded with E33. I used R20 for the inside of their ears and E01 for their hands, feet and tail.

For the bottle I simply added color along the outline with B000. I decided the medicine should be cherry flavored so I colored it R83, shaded with R85. The label is E50, shaded with E53. Oh, and I added a little E42 on the ground below them.

I created the flower using 3 different flowers from my Prima Bucket of Blooms then airbrushed them to match using YG63, B29 and R24. I also airbrushed the gems in the corners to match.

I hope you enjoy my creation and please join in on the fun.
