MR. & MRS. CLAUS

Hey there, I'm back with another image that has been colored up for months and just sitting on my desk collecting dust.  This is a Whipper Snapper Designs stamp called Mr. & Mrs. Claus...aren't they precious?  They were fussy cut then popped up on foam.  The sentiment was computer generated, cut out with a Nestie then sponged with Memento ink.  A clear glaze pen was used on the glasses, earrings and the holly berries in Mrs. Claus' hair.  Don't you love the vintage brad in the center of the poinsettia?  It looks like it could be one of Mrs. Claus' earrings.




Here's the inside...
