'Santa is coming to town'

I'm back with another christmas card for today's post. I'm loving the santa stamps from WoJ, they are so cute and are great to colour in although my red Copic was a touch too juicy and I went over the line a bit on this one so you'll have to ignore that bit! (did it near the end and wasn't about to start again). Colouring in all these santas has also made me realise I 'need' more shades of red Copics even though I have quite a few - always the way isn't it :D I used a smaller 5" square card for a change (usually use 6" square ones) and loving how quickly it all came together and this santa is a perfect size for a smaller card.

  • Stamps: 'Quiet Santa' WoJ, circle santa seal stamp is a Magnolia stamp from xmas '09 collection. flourish bits in corner from an Inkadinkado set
  • Colouring: Copics, added 'glistening snow writer' and glamour dust to his white trim
  • Paper: Basic Grey 'figgy pudding' I think, not sure as scrap piece no name left on it!
  • Tools: holly & flower punch
  • Others: ribbon & gems

    Thanks for stopping by & have a lovely day. Will be back tomorrow with another card (I seem to be on a roll now that I'm not stressing with following challenges or sketches!)
