CDS Sneak Peek - Holiday Nutcrackers

Welcome back for sneak peek number 2 of 3 for today :) This stunning set is called Holiday Nutcrackers and I knew the minute I saw them that I had to have them! I adore nutcrackers!

For this King of the nuts *giggle* I watercoloured him with Tombow Markers and an aqua painter and then sponged some ink on the die cut oval to create some dimension. I wanted to add that old fashioned vintage ornament feeling so I added a couple of layers of clear embossing powder and created the cracked glass effect - although it's incredibly hard to tell in these photos!

Don't forget to swing on by a little later in the day for the last sneak peek of the day, and until then, pop by and visit these lovely ladies and their awesome creations!
