SantaClaws, North Coast Creations

For this cute Z-fold kitty, I stamped Santa Claws in Adirondack Pitch Black and colored with Copics. The fur on the hat has Flower Soft, the embossing is Gracie’s Frame.

SantaClaws, Santa Paws, North Coast Creations

For this one, I decided I’d try a little masking. Again stamped in Pitch Black and colored with Copics. The ornaments also have some metallic gel pen.

I don’t know if you’ll be able to see it, but to make the fur a little more realistic, I took my thinnest piercing tool and ‘scratched’ fur lines after coloring.
