Friday Sketchers 25 - That Santa

My bestest buddy in blogland managed to get hold of 'That Santa' stamp for me which I was over the moon about (she knows who she is). This is the first time I've inked it up and I was so over-excited that I coloured it and stickled his beard. lol.

I've used the lovely sketch by Claudia Rosa over at Friday Sketchers challenge for this one.

Items used:
Anita's Christmas Vellum and paper.
Dovecraft Victorian Christmas paper.
Gold card.
Black satin ribbon
Letters cut out of black glitter paper.
Rubber Stampede Santa Collage stamp
StayzOn black ink
Watercolour pencils
Diamond Stickles

Fab card Sharon ... love your colouring on That Santa and the way you have rotated the sketch. I have occasionally coloured his eyes blue, but never thought of giving him rosy cheeks (ho! ho! ho!) before - must try it :-)
