Santa Selfie

Morning All - Sorry I'm a little later than usual posting this morning but its because I'm using this "Hot of the pencil" image.... Called Santa Selfie from Dr Digi. This will be available very soon to buy -so watch the website!


I actually added loads of glitter but not sure you can see it very well in this photo... glitter for snow is compulsory in my opinion. I saw this image and had to have it - Its traditional christmas with the very modern phenomenon that is the Selfie!! I have so many friends that this image is perfect for.

We had our Girls night out on Friday and headed to the Christmas markets in Chester - It really got me in the Festive spirit - as did the Gluhwein!! I love Christmas but when is it appropriate to put up the decorations... It has to be December at least for me but there is a fully decorated tree in a neighbouring house.

To make this card I used striped paper from Doodlebug Santa Express collection. I also cut a strip of green paper with a deckle edge blade from Simple Stories December Documented collection. I trimmed the image down to a thin stripe and glue it altogether, whilst wrapping some Snowflake ribbon around the top. This is a great layout for using up scraps. I added a Craftworks card Christmas greeting and also some Doodlebug letters to spell out "Santa Selfie". My finishing touches to the image were Diamond Stickles to the snowman and Star dust stickles to Santa's beard. I added a little glaze to the phone and used some black gems to make the Coal on the Snowman's face pop out a bit more.  

I used these Promarkers and flexmarkers -
Santas skin - Spice, Coral, Soft Peach, Blush & Antique white with Baby pink cheeks & nose
Hair & Beard -  Warm grey 1 & 2. Powder blue eyes.
Shirt - Shadowed with Icicle
Pants - Poppy, Ruby & Cardinal Red
Boots & Braces & Snowmans Hat - Warm grey 5, 4 & 3
Snowman - Blue Grey 1 & 2 & Powder blue.
Scarf - Poppy & Cardinal, Grass & Emerald.
Carrot - Bright Orange & Gold
 Stick arm - Raw sienna & Cocoa.

So i'll witter no on more and let you see this fab new image!
