You're the Good Kind of Weird

Hey, everyone! It's Christmas All Year Long at Scrapping for Less and I have some fun inspiration for you using the My Favorite Things Beast Friend stamp set. This was one of my first stamp sets from My Favorite Things  and it's still one of my favorites!

I stamped and colored the little yeti holding the string of lights with my Copics. My favorite way to color these guys is with light Neutral Gray Copic markers and skin tones for his face and ears. I grabbed some Distress Inks and started blending ink onto a background panel. I only used Crushed Olive, but because I didn't clean off my blender brush the inside blending is a different shade of green. I quite like it when I stumble upon happy accidents!

Once the ink blended background was completely dry I white heat embossed the three trees from the Beast Friends stamp set repeatedly across my card. I was going to leave it this way, but I decided to add a bit of shine with a gold ink from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolor palette. I'm so glad I did! To match the gold watercoloring I heat embossed a gold sentiment onto a strip, popped up my sentiment and yeti, and added some gold glittery enamel dots around the card.

I love how the gold and green play off each other, don't you?! Thanks for joining me! I hope you're inspired to break out your Christmas supplies and get crafty!
