I just HAD to use this image for the 'something real' challenge, it is too adorable to resist <3
Dedicated to winterlionheart, as I know you are a fellow rat fan :D
I tried to make the image a little softer, then added the brushwork and the bar at the bottom. I only played a little with the colours, I just increased the contrast a teeny bit. To be honest it was a good photo, so I didn't want to over complicate it.

I found the image in some news article, but here it is on another site[link]
Man, i'm so slow at making cards these days. Moving house took a lot of sorting ^^'
