I have a family member who collects nutcrackers so when I saw this image from Clear Dollar Stamps, I had to have it!
I used the sketch from Clear Dollar Stamps' challenge this week and I went for a CAS approach to let the image really shine! All the gold parts of the image are paper pieced in and shaded with a bit of Copic marker. When I use punches, I often think the parts you are supposed to throw away look kinda cool. Here I found a use for them by adding them to the top and bottom of the main image panel. (man I wish I could take a better picture !!!!)
