Santa is STUCK!

Hey Lovely Blogging Buddies....

I'm back yet again!!  This time I have a lovely little Santa to share with you!  But he's in a bit of a difficult situation to say the least...  he's got himself stuck!!  I hope no-one lights a fire in the hearth - or he'll jump out fast!!

I tried another snowy sky - this time I used Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, with a little Scattered Straw around the chimney.  Again, I tried the splatter technique with my white paint - but I'm still not happy with the result.... one day I'll get it right!  He looks like he's in a bit of a blizzard this time!  I've tried to make the glittery base of the card look like a roof full of snow so the chimney is sticking up from it...  not sure that's succeeded either!  But it's all sparkly and that makes me happy....
