Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Day 2





Today's featured sets are Christmas Postage and Bold & Free.
For my first sample I used the Santa postage stamp. Isn't he the cutest?
For my second sample I made a "postage sheet of stamps" with the Nutcracker, colored in different colors of Copic markers and highlighted with gold and silver glitter Smooch accent ink.
My third is an easel card using all MFP supplies (except for punches). The silhouette image was stamped in a dark brown on a brayered and sponged color background. The tag features the sentiment and the wheat grass image. Designer paper is Indian Summer by Basic Grey.
