This challenge is an extra special one, for it will run for 3 weeks instead of the normal two. There's plenty of time to get your entries in to be in the running for our fabulous prize from Make it Crafty, who are once again sponsoring our challenge.
I have created this card for my DT work, using one of Make It Crafty's fabulous images. I think this Aussie Santa captures the very spirit of Christmas in Australia.
Isn't he awesome?? This is exactly what Santa would look like on the Aussie leg of his journey I am sure - it's too hot for any red fur-trimmed suit here!
I have coloured him with copics, and in typical Aussie summer style have even given him a sunburnt nose. The sentiment was a freebie digi (still can't remember who from), and the papers were Simple Stories. The bits of ribbons were cut offs from previous card making endeavours and all the white edges were sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I also distressed the edges with my new Tim Holtz distress tool - now my favourite little toy.
I hope you like my creation and will join us with all your festive creations at The Squirrel and The Fox. My teammates have all done a fabulous job with their creations, make sure you check them out.
