Critters on snow

CR00539 square

A mouse for my mum and a bunny for my other half’s sister. Some things never change. Copic colouring, fussy cutting, die-cuts and glitter are also a Christmas staple.

I was originally going to leave a white border around the edge of the images — apart from any aesthetic choices, that tail is quite tricky to cut out cleanly — but then one of my green markers decided to splooge all over the end of the skis and that put an end to that idea.

This card was also a good reminder that you don’t have to stick with card colours you’re not completely happy with. The light blue card I used for the sky was okay but not great; eventually it occurred to me that I could fix it by blending Distress ink over the top…
