Bug A Boo Stamps Christmas Brats


It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug!  I chose Jodie's Christmas Brats and the bench with the Christmas tree for my card so I could squeeze in one more Christmas card here.  I just had to color these cute images!

These are two different digital images merged in my Publisher Program, what fun!  Here's what they look like before I started.  These have watermarks because they're from the Bug A Boo Stamps store.



I used Copic markers and a Copic clear Spica glitter pen to highlight the snow on the bench, tree and star.  I wish it showed up better in the picture! I also used Crystal Lacquer on the ornaments for some shine.  The tag is a Spellbinder's die and the sentiment is becoming one of my Christmas favorites from a Papertrey Ink stamp set.
