USCSC5 I played my best for him..

pah rum pa pum pum! I love the Little Drummer Boy!

I got this image and the coordinating ones from High Hopes last year before Christmas. It is alot of work to color for mass produced cards but fun for one! It is the only image I own that has a musical instrument so i am using it for the Papercraft Planet 12 days of christmas challenge but the site is down right now. I used the Unity sketch and the red piece is stamped with Unity's worn grid - it is becoming my go to background stamp! I distressed all the edges and then I inked them up - I got a little carried away on the main image but it took to long to color to re-do! I desperately need a new small water brush!!!!! Any suggestions?! I thought the twine was perfect for this! I inked up only part of the sentiment to fit my rectangle punch! Thanks for looking!
