Santa Selfie

Morning - I have been busy making Christmas cards and today I am showing you one made with Santa Selfie.
One of the things I love most about Dr Digi image is that they are great for the Men in our lives. So often its hard to find images for the boys that are not too cute or stereotypical "Masculine"  like cars and sports. Dr Digi allows me to make humorous cards and at the mo I am loving the wood effect backgrounds and elements - which go perfectly with the Dr Digi guys.

The papers are from Simple Stories Snow days and I have die cut snowflakes from Vellum using Lawn Fawn dies. I have also added some wooden embellishments that are from Do Crafts (I think?)
I've included the next picture to show the shimmer and snowy effect I have tried to add using Sakura Glaze and Souffle pens along with Stickles and using Powder Blue Promarker to add shading. 

I have used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour Santa -
Skin - Antique white, blush, soft peach, coral, Spice & Cocktail pink cheeks
Pants - Red, Poppy, Ruby & Cardinal red.
Shirt - Linen with gold buttons
Braces, Boots, Mobile & Hat - Warm Grey 1,2 4 & 5
Scarf - Lime Zest, Lime green & Pear green, Sky blue, arctic blue & indigo blue.
Stick arm - Sandstone, Burnt Umber & Cocoa
Snowman - Powder blue.
