it's Tanja here again and I created this sweet Christmas Card using the Gerda Steiner Designs The Nutcracker stamp set:
- stamp the nutcracker, a mouse and the walnuts from the Gerda Steiner Designs The Nutcracker set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black
- color the images with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers, add extra-shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and highlights with a white gel pen
- create a background on a piece of kraft cardstock by applying Distress Ink (Candied Apple, Pine Needles, Gathered Twigs) through the Festive Tim Holtz Layering stencil
- stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Clair Pinecone
- add strips of kraft cardstock and of patterned paper to the left and right side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase
I hope you got inspired.
