Getting into the spirit





Every time I see this advert I get that warm, fuzzy, Christmas is coming feeling, and I think it's sort of inspired my piece for this weeks DT spot over on Clare Curd Crafts, only I've used a fox and a hare, no bears here.
 
 
I've used a 5x7 canvas board as my substrate, and applied layers of acrylic paints and sprays to get the desired background effect.
 
The trees and animals ( how cute are they) are from the Winter Critters set, by Crafty Impressions and the Santa and reindeers are from the Here comes Santa set, by IndigoBlu

 
If you are in the market for some new Christmas stamps, have a look over on Clares shop as she has some real beauties on sale.
