For Ky's Laugh About It MIXed media challenge. I'm only barely scraping in with the mixed media - the background is from my spray box, so it will mostly be acrylic sprays but there's probably some Pixie Powder in there too, as it has a real golden shimmer. The "imagine" was left from another project and is a leafy background stamped on white. I did also use some Craft-T rub-ons - both on the arrow and around the edges of my paper-cast rat. I chose him thinking that he could say he wasn't hoarding, he was sending some toilet paper to the recipient. But then I found the Imagine on my desk and it filled the space, and imagine if this was all the toilet paper you had left in your house - you still wouldn't use it.
I added some gold star sequins.
Referring to uploads I'd made earlier with this technique, I read that I had found one could use Ranger's Archival to ink the stamp before adding the wet paper - so that's what I did, although in the end I also went over the outline with a fine black pen, and added white paint dots to the eyes to restore some detail.

Sabrina, this delightful card made me chuckle right out loud. I adore the expression on this little mouses face (yes, it is priceless). Your background is fabulous and a bit magical even, especially with all these sparkly gold stars. I hope this mouse is able to imagine in a big way! ~Karen.
