Paper Make-Up Nutcracker

The Christmas card making is in full swing now and I have another to show you today. This one uses the lovely Paper Make-Up Nutcracker image and a fab Paper Make-Up sentiment both are available over at Quixotic Paperie just perfect for Christmas. I’ve matched him with the very Christmassy Echo Park Merry Christmas and added some lovely flat-backed pearls.

I grunged (is that a word?) up the papers a little by screwing up the music paper and then using inks over the top.

Right, off to make more Christmas cards.

Catch you later.
