It's nearly time for Santa!! Anything Goes Challenge - Traditional Christmas Colours
Time is flying by and it's nearly time for the big man's visit!! Our theme at Anything Goes this time is 'Traditional Christmas Colours'... An easy one for me where Santa is concerned!
I used a gorgeous stamp that I've used before, from Sugar Nellie... called Old Saint Nick... and he's such a pleasure to colour... although you do have to watch that the deep red colour doesn't run into what should be white - it has a habit of doing so!
I used a mix of Copics and Promarkers to colour him... a lot of fab Glamour Dust on his hat and coat... and a bit of shading creating his shadow.
The DP is by Scenic Route and is called Brighton Blizzard... (don't think it's made any more), and I've added some dotty grosgrain ribbon. A PC generated sentiment (as it's for an order), finishes the card.
Don't forget to pop over to Anything Goes - to see my fab teamies gorgeous creations... and also to see if you were a winner on our last challenge. Lots of lovely craft goodies can be purchased online at the Craft Den - why not pop over and take a look?!
Looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations for this challenge!
Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
