It really is turning fall on us.  It makes me sad.  However this year our leaves are not turned yet, two weeks in a row we had close to 90 degree temps here in northern Wisconsin.  Whaaaaaat???  Ah well, everywhere I look I see signs of fall and the calendar says it is. 
Simon’s Monday Challenge this week is to make a Halloween card.  I decided to pull out my cute house mousies!  I also pulled out my Copics.  I believe it’s been over a year since I used them and oh how fun to blend and blend.  But then, I pulled out twenty copics, right???  How can one image take twenty different colors.  But it did.  My MFT die cut fence is 8 layers deep.  Spray adhesive is an easy way to attach so many of them to one another.  I couldn’t be without that stuff.  One can lasts a looooonnnnngggg time.  Sometimes you have to use a solvent on the tip though to keep it spraying smoothly.
Here’s the result of all that copic coloring.  I mounted the image onto a stenciled background made with Hero Arts stencil and Broken China and Peacock Feathers oxide 
 inks sponged onto black card stock. 
This qualifys for NBUS challenge as the stencil and inks are NBUS also the sentiment die. That little arrow taggie like thing and the crooked fence too has been around a LOOOONGGG time.
