I chose Cat Big Mouth as showcasing the ART IMPRESSIONS PRODUCTS.
This was real fun - once I'd got my head around it. I never follow instructions - I just jump in - I always get there at the end but would make it easier if I'd followed the instructions!!
I coloured the image with the usual Copic Makers
The first image is with a black background - the second shows the glittered with Hero Arts Ultrafine Glitter.

This is the Cat with his Mouth closed

And here with the it Open - poor little mouse looks terrifies!!

LIM..........A Sketch!!




I'm back from holiday - sadly. I didn't get home until 2-00 am and couln't sleep as I had 'gone' past it and am still tired and trying to get myself back together!! 
Non the less today was my mail priority - making my LIM challenge. I love the sketch challenge this week and put it together fairly easily. I used the Simon Says Stitched Rectangles and placed some ancient vellum beneath to upper one and an equally ancient wooden Birthday stamp.  To finish it off and cut out one flower of the vellum and attached it over the stitched rectangle and added a Prima Marketing Ocean - Says it in Crystals.

I wanted a very simple corners and couldn't find Lols so I use the Simon Says Stitched Squares angled them to create simple corners.
The sentiment is from Simon Says One With Nature Clear Stamp Sets - NAMASTE - which is a respectful greeting which I have always used when being or finishing a Yoga class, This makes it perfect for the gorgeous image!!
