They say it comes but once a year....

... but that's clearly a lie!! It's only a couple of days later and Christmas is here again! Rich reds for these ones, always very christmassy in my book, and maybe a little bit of a retro feel too, though that could be down to the stamps I've used. No acrylic paint this time, just distress ink pads. Fired brick distress ink pad was rubbed directly onto the pages to colour them, then rubbed with a wet baby wipe to get the patchy blurry effect. Any extra blur effect is down to my phone camera!

My much loved Tsukineko/Sakura white pen has gotten very sick, it's either dry or dropping great globs of white ink all over the place I haven't been able to find a replacement locally, so I have used a Sakura glaze pen for the snow and beard highlights. Still on limited supplies/equipment and photographed with my phone.
