Changito Santa

Good morning! I had a bit of free time Saturday, so I was searching for a challenge I could work on. I actually found 4 that looked fun; I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop, and combined it with the Crazy 4 Challenges "It's Santa", Raise the Bar "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas", and Wee Memories "Holiday" challenges.

I've had this cute Changito Santa stamp just waiting to be inked up...I love his expression...it is a bit "Bah Humbug"! I colored Changito with pencils and added a bit of glitter to his hat. For the sketch, I ended up using a panel of vellum for one of the layers. I had cut some coordinating DP and decided it just didn't look right, plus I hated to cover up the cute background DP. I attached the vellum with glittery brads and finished off the card with some ribbon.

Image: Stampendous
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Passion Pink, Doodlebug DP, The Paper Studio Vellum
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: Doodlebug Glitter Brads in "Lily White", Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", White Grosgrain Ribbon, Pink Organdy Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by; enjoy your day!
