Karen's Doodles Challenge 20 - Sketch

This week at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog we have another sketch challenge.  For my card, I chose to use Karen's newest images, Santa's House and Santa Waving.



I started this card backwards, meaning I assembled it before I even printed my images.  That way I had an idea of how large my images could be.  Then I sized them and printed them onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Santa - E000, E00, R20
Eyes - B12
Suit - R37
Gloves - YG63
Boots & Belt - C5
Belt Buckle - YR23
Sack - E41
I added Sparkly Fluff to the hat and suit trim.

Santa's House - E42, YG63, R37
Gumdrop doorway - RV32, Y21, YG41, BG32
Candy canes - R37
Steps & Mailbox - E41, E42
Trees - G40
Sky - BG11 and blender pen
I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the edges of the snow.  Click on the close-up for a better look, you can also see the sparkle from the Cryogen paper.

Once again, the DP  is from the Merrymint collection by American Crafts.  I am going to be sad when this is all gone.  Finished size is 6" square.

Won't you please join in on the fun? You could win....
