Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Hop!


Hello friends, 

I am back with Newton's Nook Designs today celebrating the "Deck the Halls with Inky Paws" Blog Hop! 

I have another card to share featuring The Nutcracker Squeak stamp set.  This time, I am focusing on the adorable ballerina and Nutcracker prince mice. 


I used Distress Oxide inks to create the background and spattered it with water lifting the excess ink with a paper towel.  I adhered several tiny sequins to the background to mimic the look of snowflakes softly falling onto the scene below.  I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers and arranged them onto a snow drift of glitter cardstock that I free-hand cut with scissors. I added clear glitter Stickles to the ballerina tutus to add some additional sparkle. My final step was to stamp the sentiment with black ink.
