Snowflake Santa


Another Santa card this time an easel card too this time . The sentiment is from LOTV and embossed in red moonglow ink and a hand-cut snow flake glammed up with stickles for extra impact. The easel card I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch to fancy up the edges.


The image I used is a forever friends magazine from a magazine freebie set. I coloured him with the grah iy markers i won and some I bought to trry a while ago. I tried to blend the colours firstly paprika and plum for his clothes and lemon and peach for his body. I yhink I need alot more pactice as I found that the blender tended to dilute the colour  so I tried colouring onto the card and blending there. The clothes colours seemed to work quite well but the peach and lemon not so much but I think I quite like the effect. I need much more practice though.


I decided to make this card as an easel card and as the stopper on the base I used a sparkly poinsettia. I used another spellbinders circle for the place to write my message and again added embossed snowflakes paper to the base and punched snow flakes down the sides.
