Inkspirations Challenge #46 - Sunny Santa


This week Makeesha has set a colour challenge of Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze, So Saffron & Very Vanilla.  You can check out the DT pieces & other entries here.

Here is my late night entry!  :)


Sorry, the photo is a bit ordinary - shouldn't be trying to take photographs late at night - lol.

I have used a digital image by Dustin Pike, which I have masked to sponge the sun & sky.  Santa's spotty yellow rubber ring has been paper pieced & coated in crystal effects.  Santa has been coloured with inkpad inks, an aquapainter & blender pens.  His beard, mo & eyebrows have been coated with white flocking powder.  I have added dazzling diamonds to the waves to make them sparkly!  :)

Card Components:
Cardstock:  Poppy Parade, Whisper White (oops, should have been Vanilla!), Watercolour Paper
DSP:  Poppy Parade stripe from 6x6 Hostess Pack, Saffron Spot (retired)
Stamps:  Santa by Dustin Pike, SU Short & Sweet (sentiment)
Inks:  Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Blush Blossom
Other:  Dazzling Diamonds, Crystal Effects, White Flocking Powder, Clear Glaze Pen, Dimensionals, Large Oval Punch, Ribbon, Sponges, CM Cutting Patterns - Ovals

Super-cute! Love all the gloss and sparkle (although you probably weren't feeling too glossy or sparkly when you got it photographed, LOL).
