I'm down to 37 days till Christmas. If you deduct the days for mailing to arrive, there is only 30 days. If I want the cards to be there for Christmas.
So yesterday I started. Only 45 more cards to go.
I started off with this cute little Santa Bear. Where I got the stamp from , I don't know, I've had it for a long time.
It only has three color groups in it so it is rather easy to do. As you will notice, I have used five shades of red for the coat and hat. It may sound like over kill, but it makes it easier to blend. Red is a very intense color and hard to blend. With the browns I used four colors for the same reason.
Here are the colors used;
Suit & Hat: R20,R22,R24, R27, R29 Bears Body: E31, E33,E35, E37 Tree: G14, G16, G19

The hat rim, pompom, jacket trim, and cuffs had Puff Tulip Paint applied to them and sprinkled with Prisma-Glitter, then heat set to make those areas puff up. The rest of the card was pretty standard. A little gold leafing pen, some backgrounds speckles, and walla the card was finished.
Only 44 more cards to go.
Hope you like it?
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
