Happy Sunday folks!
Santa's not really coming to town, not yet anyway. It's just he's the theme for the latest Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge .........
We have to design a card using the big man himself .......
I was inspired by a gorgeous tag I spotted on Pinterest using this stamp ......... unfortunately I didn't make a note of the designer ...... I'm so sorry!! If, like me, you spend hours on Pinterest I'm sure you could do a search and find him .... he is rather gorgeous!
I stamped the Santa collage onto my square of white card using Black Versafine ink. I then added the colour around him with Stormy Sky Distress ink. I did my favourite thing of splattering water over the top and removing the excess with kitchen roll
I then stamped more snowflakes over the top, some using Black Versafine and some with Versamark ink and added white embossing powder.
You can see I also used my fine-liner pen to add a few dots here and there to continue the design of the stamp all the way to the edges of the card.
I added just a touch of colour to Santa's face using Distress Inks and finished off with touches of fine crystal glitter, and a Stardust Gel pen for his spectacles
A bit of matting and layering and a festive sentiment .......
and a nice CAS finish to the inside ...... that's another one for the festive box done!
You know what ...... I might even make some more of these ..... I quite like him!!
I was dancing around the craft room at the beginning of the week when I found out I was last weeks Merry Monday Weekly Winner ..... whoo hoo!!
Thank you so much ladies ...... I really do appreciate it.
It also means that I'll be joining the challenge next week ..... tomorrow even ..... as Guest Designer, I can't wait!!
Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy your Sunday.
We're supposed to be making a start on sorting out the garage today, ready for when we move ...... oh joy! I've got a better idea ...... let's not! It's been on the 'To Do' list for weeks .... we just keep putting it off!! I say let's it if off again ....... a little retail therapy sounds like a much better option to me! Why not add to the mountain of stuff we've already got!!
Cheerio until next time
