Santa's Workshop


I've been busy working on some Halloween projects that I can't share with ya just quite yet. However, I took a little break yesterday and switched holidays to make a card. I recently received this fabulous Whipper Snapper stamp. It's called Santa's Workshop and let me tell ya - it's fun to color!!! I actually got my color inspiration directly from the Whipper Snapper link itself - can't beat that! You know, I wouldn't mind living in Santa's Workshop. This cottage is uber cute, it would definitely go along with the color scheme we use in our house and check out the snow!!! I get very excited when I see snow :) I colored the image in with Copics. I went over all of the snow areas with Mint Shimmerz! It was the perfect shade for snow and it gave the image the right amount of sparkle. Those little dots in the corner are actually red Metal Nailhead Stickers. Found them in the clearance section at Archiver's. I followed Mojo 108 for the layout. I had to make my card a tad larger so the image would fit, so it measured 4.25 x 6! Thanks for stopping by. Hope your getting lots of holiday cards made!!!
