Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop: Day Two: Christmas Postage Due; Bold & Free

Day 2
NOV 10 (WEDNESDAY) 2 SETS: Christmas Postage Due; Bold & Free

My sample for "Christmas Postage" is below:

I used papers and rhinestones from my stash
and Copics for coloring.  I couldn't find
my "postage stamp" scissors so used my
next best in hopes it came close?

My sample for "Bold & Free" is below:

All papers and stamps by Mark's Finest Papers
Copic markers
airbrushing tools
cloud template by PrintWorks
circle punch by Fiskars
