So here is my make :
and just in case red is more your colour :
I started off with a plain wooden door hanger and gave it a good coat of frayed burlap Distress paint, when dry I added a coat of paperartsy crackle glaze and then added a coat of nougat fresco on the top. This gives a really great crackle when dry...
I then edged the whole hanger in Distress ink to coordinate with the colour , I know he favours a red suit but I am a blue girl at heart! To add to the layers I stamped some snowflake style stamps, coated with sticky embossing powder and gave a liberal coating of distress glitter, rock candy flavour!
I have to say I do love the sugar coated sparkle this gives. ( just harder to capture on film!)
Then onto Santa, well I have to say I have fallen in love with this gorgeous vintage Santa from the old fashioned Christmas set , from Tim Holtz. So I set about stamping him in jet black archival and using a water brush and yummy Distress markers to colour him in.
and red :
I added a little sparkle to the trim of his hat, sleeve and buttons, using rock candy distress glitter.
To finish I added the wording in black archival using the Tim Holtz lettering set , worn text set.
Well hope you like my festive make ...and that Santa pays you all a visit when the time comes!
keep those fingers inky!
