I always shy away from the dark markers when I colour, so I decided it was about time I made myself use them.
I need a lot more practice!
The image I have used is by Whiff of Joy called "Henry Mouse with Christmas Bauble". A big thank you to Vicky for this fab image. I've used a Sakura clear glitter pen to add sparkle to the pattern on the bauble (sorry it doesn't show!).
The background stamp is by Hero Arts called "Large Canvas Stripes" (S5433). I stamped it onto white card using Versamark ink and heat embossed with fine white embossing powder (I could easily have used clear embossing powder as the cardstock was white). Then I sponged over "Peeled Paint" distress ink and ran a red marker pen around the edges.
The sentiment is also by Hero Arts from a clear stamp set called "Magic of Christmas" (CL462).
Thank you for visiting!
Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx
