The Nutcracker by Sharna

Hello Crafty Friends! I’m here with a brand new Digi Stamp release from Rachelle Anne Miller, “The Nutcracker Scene Creator”! 

I started with copic coloring the main images. I am sharing the colors I used for each of them. The accessories are using the same combos as well. 

For the background I started with some green cardstock from my stash that matched well with Pine Needles distress oxide. This saves me a bunch of time from having to ink blend a whole panel from scratch. I took that pine needle distress oxide and went around the edges leaving a good portion in the middle untouched. Then I used black soot distress oxide very sparingly around the edges on top. This nicely draws the eye into the middle where our focal point will be. Lastly for the background I added some splatter in Blue Gold Gansai Tambi starry water colors.

As a kid I grew up watching the theater and ballet and my absolute favorite was definitely The Nutcracker. My mom and I still try and go every few years to a performance and it’s always magical. I even have a Mouse King ornament we bought at one of the performances years and years ago. That’s what inspired the color palette for me today. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
