Are you going Nutcrackers?


This card is perfect for a quarantined Christmas.  We just recently decided that we will not be traveling to see family for Christmas.  It was a hard reality to accept.  Oh well... it will make next year that much better.  Since most of us have been locked up since March it is easy to understand that we are going a little Nutcrackers.

Good at Being Naughty

 Hello friends, 

For about three years now, I've been wanting to make some silly Christmas cards.  It is hard because I know that not everyone enjoys that style of card.  I thought that with everyone being stuck in quarantine that this year might a good year to bring a little extra laughter into the mix.    My next few posts are going to be featuring some silly stamps.  I hope you get a chuckle out of them. 

This frog made me smile the instant I saw him.  The expression on his face is just perfect.  I used a reverse masking and a stencil to create the cloudy background.  

Copics used:

Green: YG67, YG17, YG13, YG11
Grey: C7, C5, C3, C1
Red: R29, R24, R14
Light: YR12, Y15, Y13, Y11, Y00
I added glitter to the snow
