Hamster Holiday

I've been playing around with the new(ish) MFT Christmas Selfies and MFT Peace Love Joy Stencil lately. You'll be seeing a couple of other cards using these on the Doodlebugs Blog in the future but I couldn't resist posting this one today.  So cute!

I used the hamsters from MFT Picture Perfect and added one of the LF Tiny Gift Box Holiday Hats to Christmas them up.

For the background I sponged the MFT Peace Love Joy Stencil with Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch then applied Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste over that. The LF Stitched Snowflakes are cut from glitter foam and cardstock. So sparkly happy!

I colored up the hamsters and photo background using Copics. My Posco pigment pen is my go-to for adding dots and minor fixes.
