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!!
