Must Be Santa

It isn't Christmas without Santa!!!  This design uses Distressed inks/stains, wax, Promarkers, and Gel Pens.

Poinsettia is a special cut I designed.  There are a couple more sizes so you could add more petals to make the poinsettia bigger if designing on a bigger surface.  The inserts are cool as the Star of Bethlehem!

Distressed inked center of Santa Bingo Card in yellow hue.

Also Distressed with Tea Dye and edged card with Vintage stain.

Pounced a pink hue of Adirondack Dabber paints to lighten up the card.

Gelly pen used on eyes, hat design and other areas.

Painted Santa's beard white.

Promarker for Poinsettia, and face.  Used a darker hue for bottom petals.

Base coated little poinsettia petals in white then added Promarker in lighter hue.

Added Prills for center of poinsettia.

Used wax for outline areas of beard to make it raised.  Also did puddles of wax on hat for that fluffy look!  I sprinkled "Crystal Accents," (a very very fine mica glitter) to make the hat sparkle.

Crystal Accents added to snowflake and hat .

Close up of Santa!

With this holiday season, I would like to thank Unique Laser Designs for the opportunity to design with their fabulous woodcuts.  Also for using my wood pattern designs on some of the cuts!  The design team is very talented and I am blessed to be a member designing along side these creative teammates.

May your holidays be bright and filled with art supplies!!!!
