Isn’t he a cutie?  He’s a Wild Rose Studio stamp but he doesn’t seem to get many outings, must rectify that as he’s so lovely to colour.

I used two pieces of free digital paper, edging both with DI Tumbled Glass.  The scalloped circle, corner dies and snowflakes are all DCWV Glitter paper and the  sentiment and light blue backing card came from the UK ages ago.  I coloured Mr Pickle with Prisma pencils, adding a bit of Martha glitter to his hat and some yellow Stickles to his little beak.  He was then cut out and popped up on foam dots.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I also added a few little gems but didn’t want to over embellish it.  The LO is from this weeks sketch at Sketch Saturday.
