Christmas is coming ... manga style

When I saw that the theme this fortnight over at The Sugar Bowl was 'Christmas', I just had to join in. Especially as I'd just purchased some of the new Manga Christmas stamps.

Here is the sketch that they provided.

All papers used (apart from the Bazzill) are from the Sassafraslass ~ Serendipity: Life at the Pole collection.

I've used my Martha Stewart ~ Snowflake punch and my Fiskars ~ Antique Elegance circle punch everywhere I could! I've inked the edges and added stickles for some extra Christmas sparkle.

As usual with my photos, zoom in for a closer view of the detail.

The snowflake trim across the middle was made from Bazzill ~ Just the Edge Cardstock Strips. I cut apart each snowflake, inked the edges and added some stickles. I'm having a bit of a stickle thing going on a the moment you might have guessed!

The image is Sugar Nellie ~ Miss Clasue. Isn't she just darling?

I coloured her with my copics and added yet more stickles to the white trims.

The 'Christmas is coming' sentiment is a rub-on.

Thank you for looking.
