Believe!

Hello Friends!

I am back today with a Magnolia Santa image.  I am getting a pretty good start on my Christmas cards and hope to have them done here real soon.  I had a lot of fun coloring Santa up with my copics.  I used liquid appliqué on Santa's furry parts (hat and suit trim).  I finished the image with distress inks to give it some depth.

I choose MME paper from the Christmas pack for this card, a random button with some twine and ribbon.  The tree charm is from Ribbon Girl.  The sentiment, by Stampabilities, was dry embossed onto the tag for some extra texture.


Copics used:
Suit:  R89, R27, R24, W5, W3
Beard:  W2, W1, 0
Boots/Belt:  110, C9, C7, C5
Bag:  E50, E53, E55, E57
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E13

The inside is done with MME paper and a spellbinders die cut with a Stampabilities sentiment, Felt with the Heart.


I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
