I thought I’d take the opportunity to make another Christmas card as I’ve not gotten round to making too many yet.Ooops!I’ve used Winter Tweet from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps.He looks so cute wrapped up warm and I just love his wellies!He’s been coloured with Promarkers and areas have been highlighted with anInkssentials White Gel Pen.I’ve also given his boots a coating of Glossy Accents to make them lovely and shiny.I created a crisp bed of snow for him to wade through with Liquid Pearls in White Opal .
