my Christmas cards for '09


I hadn't been into one of the crafty stores that I frequent in awhile, so one day about a week ago I decided to head on over to Carousel Rubber stamp store to check out if she had anything new in. Well, I found this AMAZING Santa stamp in there and Dejah(the owner of Carousel) helped me figure out what I could do with this image. So here is what I did with this Santa image:


1) stamped him out using Archival Jet Black ink
2) used a clear glaze pen on all his beard/mustache and hair
3)colored in his beard and hair using my gray Tombow marker
4) used a gold glitter pen for his glasses
5) used the glass finish on his glasses lenses and eyes
6)used puffy paint on his hat
7) colored in his face using my SU skin colored marker
8) then I attached him to green cardstock that I picked up from Photo Memories






LOVE how he turned out too...can't wait to play around with this stamp a bit more to see what else I can do with him. This last picture you see, I wanted to show you what his puffy hat looked like up close :)! Thanks for stopping by :)!

Inky Hugs,
Catherine
