Platypus Christmas Card


I used a digital stamp from Meljen's called Christmas Platypus. He is colored with pencils. The sentiment is from Desert Diva. The card is embellished with ribbon, cotton, a white pompom and glitter.

TOP TIP: A cotton ball can be pulled apart to create the look and feel of fur. It is used on the Santa hat.
