Snowflake Sparkle and a Nutcracker



Two more projects toward my Christmas Countdown. The first is easy but a little messy with all of the glitter. I cut the large Sizzix snowflake and some of the new Northern Flurries Sizzix die and covered them in various colors of SU glitter. Center is an Ice rhinestone brad. An ornament or I may use it as my tree topper for my stamp room tree.
The second project is a sneak peek of a darling set due out on Tuesday from Mark's Fines Papers called Christmas Postage. I used the nutcracker stamp image and colored it in Copics and highlighted it in various places with the Stardust gelly roll pen by Sakura and a gold Spica marker. Basic Grey Figgy designer paper on a white base.
