Morning all xxx and Santa.

Hi Everyone …Me again.

 I have been a bit quiet in more ways then one as both hubby and i have had a lurgy …rather nasty chest infection that has left us both poorly …but I am determined not to be beaten by it so here is a very quick card …just to earn my keep and show you all I’m still alive ….I maybe down but I’m not out! ….

The card below uses one of Santa’s from the August’s Monthly Special  Father Christmas set….a spellbinder in two sizes a mask for Santa and a little ink for the clouds and snow ….Faded Jeans was the colour I used for this …Santa was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed with clear powder this stops the inks running when you go to colour him in it also helps to define the outline and to me gives a more pleasing effect…..I used a verity of reds  …Poppy. Ruby. And a Dark Pink but I’m afraid I don’t recall the colour exactly Cool grey 1 for his  fur around his coat with a little white pen to highlight the odd bit and warm grey 2 to add a little shade here and there….Lime for the candlelight with white pen again and sandstone for his lantern  stick ….black belt again a little white ..and White pen for the snowflakes dotted around the card with a few pearly ones to make it look as though they are in the foreground …. Stuck the topper onto snowy Acetate and job done .

 I hope you like my offering this week xxxx

Note to self .MUST keep hubby away from me when he has his next lurgy.!  I don’t like being ill.
