Merry Monday #10 of 20

I’ve set a goal for myself of having a new holiday-themed project to share with you every Monday until just before New Year’s, for a total of 20 projects.  Here’s this week’s:
Picture

How cute is this image from Merry Mice??!!??  I stamped it in StazOn on Watercolor Paper, then colored it in with my AquaPainter.  I gave it a very light background wash in Soft Sky ink, then filled it in with Emerald Envy, Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron (colors from the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper used under the image layer), Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride. 
Picture

While I was coloring I managed to get a smudge of Emerald Envy above the image (oops!).  I went back and inked one of the snowflakes on the image stamp and placed it over the smudge.  I think (hope!) it distracts from the smudge and makes the whole image panel balanced.
Picture

The image and DSP panels are layered on Cherry Cobbler, and Cherry Cobbler ribbon is tied around the bottom layer.  I mounted everything on a Thick Whisper White  card base.
