1. Stamp mouse image on white card panel. Colour mouse fur and skin with TN7, TN4, TN2, TN1, CR3 and Blender. The CR3 marker is used on cheeks and ears.

The Blender marker is used to “dot” over the edges of coloring. This will soften edges and create texture.

2. Colour coat and hat with DR7, DR5 and CR5. Colour holly leaves and berries with DR5 and CG3. Add shading and shadows to white areas and ground with BG2.

Use Blender marker to “dot” over BG2 on the coat and hat fur areas, mouse fur tummy and shading on ground to soften edges and create texture.
