I have coloured up Santa using Graph'it pens (which I inherited from Fluff last weekend. Suffice to say I will never need to buy any pens again as they entirely filled a shoe box up!! Thankyou kindly!!) and a smidgeon of grey pearlescent chalk on his hair. I did 4 images and then cut and layered them using round 3d foam pads to create depth.
The boots are covered in Glossy accents which doesn't really show up in the photo. His beard is sprinkled with Glamour Dust (which Miss Di insisted I buy on our outing out to the NEC. Teacher always knows best!) The trim on Santa's coat, hat and bobble are Micro beads. stuck on using doubled sided sticky tape. I finally bit the bullet and took the lid off the jar that Di had given me to try out and glad I did as they turned out to be a doddle to use.
Dotty backing paper is from a Back to basics Christmas pack by Dovercraft (star buy at the NEC for £1 and already used loads of the 72sheets of 12 designs.) The paper behind Santa is a digi called getting ready for Santa from The Paper Shelter. Sentiment is a chipboard cut out coloured using the pens above and was another £1 buy from NEC (16 sentiments again by Dovercraft.
I tried getting down really low, level with the card to get a side ways photo showing the layers and then spent 5 minutes getting back up off the floor again!! Good job I have a back appointment tomorrow.
