Blog Hoppin' Santa!



Hooray for Blog Hop! This is the first time I've been able to participate, so I am really excited. I made a Santa card for tonight's events.



I stamped Santa in Charcoal Palette ink and colored him with Prismacolor Pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Then I glued him up and added Fun Flock to his beard, jacket, and hat. It doesn't look as lumpy in real life as it does in this photo. Hmmm... I also added Glossy Accents to the cranberries in the wreath so they are all shiny and bumpy.

The patterned strip on the card base was created using Guide Lines on the Linen Vellum. I haven't used that vellum enough. It's really fabulous stuff!

I hope you've enjoyed my Blog Hop entry this month. I look forward to getting to do more of these events!
