Santa 's Chimney

     Mid month reminder for CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra sees Santa in action again. This time he looks a little warmer in traditional colours. The image is called Chimney Santa and it comes from Bugaboo Digital Stamps.
     I did print several images of Santa at the beginning of the month. I coloured two and used the blue one first, this one is coloured with alcohol markers as well.
     The image panel is matted on gold and then offset on red, I didn't have a red to match the pen I had used, so I cut a white mat and coloured the edges that would be seen with the red pen.
     The green backing has been embossed with a holly folder from Sizzix. it looked a little dull so I have rubbed gold ink over it with my finger to jazz it up a bit.
     CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra accepts anything for Christmas so if you have been busy creating come and show us.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
