Christmas Crackers - For Stamping For The Weekend DT

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well, getting all the last things done for Christmas. Well, there is still a Stampin for the Weekend challenge this week.
The theme is:
Anything Goes!
That’s right you can enter what ever you like.
We have 2 sponsors and the first one is:

The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, who is offering the winner 50 meters of Divine Bakers twine and a pack of Doilies! How great is that?! 

And the second sponsor is

Bugaboo Stamps, who is offering the winner 7 free digi stamps!
Now it’s time to show you my creation for this challenge:

Christmas Crackers with a beautiful Christmas image.
We make our own crackers every year, since it’s so expensive to buy crackers with such cheap, easy-breaking gifts inside. And it’s lost more fun and prettier to make it yourself!
Here is a tutorial I wrote a few years ago on how to make your own.

For this cracker I used a beautiful Whiff Of Joy image called Betty Mouse with Candy Cane and I coloured her with the following Copics:
R20, R21, E33 and E53 - For her skin 
R29 and R27 - For her hat, skirt and on the candy cane
Y15, Y11 and Y00 - For her yellow blouse 
Y15, Y11 and Y00 - For the bow on the candy cane.
W3 - For a shadow around the stamp.
And for this cracker, I also used a Whiff Of Joy Stamp called Christmas Train and I coloured them with the following Copics:
E35, E33 and E53 - For their skin
R20, R21 and E00 - For their ears 
 R29 and R27 - For the red on the train 
G17, G14 and G12 - For the Green on the train 
B05, B02 and B000 - For the blue on the train and the mouse’s hat
 Y15, Y11 and Y00 - For the yellow on the gift box
V04 and V01 - For the purple on the train 
W3 - For a shadow around the stamp.
Inside these crackers are Chocolate Lindor Balls, and you can give it to anyone and they will be happy.
Please hop over the Stampin For The Weekend and see if you can take part in our challenge! There are great prizes and stunning DT creations.
