So, this is the final day for the Bugaboo Christmas Crazy week. I signed on and saw the freebie at Bugaboo this week is a Santa in the Sand- and had to put aside the images I was going to use and make a card with it.
Yep, I love him! We will be spending Christmas in a warm environment again this year (we live in the snowbelt...) and I think I will make 7 more of these- for Mom and siblings : ) I will vary the inks and colors a bit just for my self satisfaction.
I inked the card using Zindorfian color skills....lol I used Pool Party for the top, Marina Mist for the water, and Creamy Carmel for the lower section, all SU inks. I added dots to the sand using Close to Cocoa and Choc. Chip markers (SU also). Using a white paint pen, I added waves in the water. The accents- skin, hat, pail, etc are colored with Copic markers. I masked of a section at the top and added some sun- used Copics markers again for that. It was WAY too bright, so I used a little COO Copic marker to try to tone it down. I put a touch of liquid applique to the end of the hat for some texture. I added a Gina Marie die to the outer edge to finish off the card.
The sentiment is from Art Impressions.
Thanks for stopping by!
