For my card, I used the set Santa's List. I love the Santa, but I've found him challenging to color and have look at least a bit natural :) This time I tried a different method and I'm quite happy with the result:
I stamped him onto Watercolor Paper using Brown Stazon stamped off once. That gave me a lighter image that made it easier to colour with inkpads and blender pens. Once I had the image colored using that method, I went over the shadowed areas with a marker then blended using the blender pen. I used a touch of Crumb Cake ink on his fur and Sahara Sand on his beard. His skin was colored using Blush Blossom and a touch of Pool Party colored his eyes.
I used an older Fusion sketch for the layout and tried to mimic my team-mate LeAnne for the shabby bow.
Thanks for looking. Now go check your stash for a Santa image and play along!
