Bah Humbug Father Christmas Challenge

This week's challenge from Bah Humbug is Father Christmas.

This had to be a traditional card for me and I chose to use my Hampton Art's Santa Claus stamp as I think it typifies the way we think of him.  I used London Fog Memento ink to stamp the image and then used ProMarkers to colour his face and hat.  I then used silver Glamour Dust to outline his hat and beard and some Stickles on the red part of his hat and the holly berries.  I added some Diamond Glaze to his glasses to make them stand out.  The image was cut out using a Nesties labels die and mounted onto a red embossed card.  The backing paper was from my stash and I ran it through my Big Shot in a Crafts Too folder.  The sentiment is one of my favourites from Hero Arts which was matted and layered onto red and gold mirri card.  The addition of a red ribbon and knot were the finishing touches.

Thanks for looking.
