Chimney Santa

Good morning everyone... Wow! These Mondays come around so that means it's time for another 'Make it Monday' Linky party and today our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps...  I have been given this lovely image of Santa to play with which you can find here... sorry my card isn't finished as I have had lots going on this week.  I want to make this into an easel card and if I get a chance to finish it I will put the finished card on later.  I wanted it to be Christmassy and girly as it's for Candice....

I've really tried new things on this card lol!!  Like major distressing of the card and paper, even painted the paper with some crafting paste I bought from Lidl that was cheap as chips, and I think it just looks like that Gesso stuff everyone is using, at a fraction of the price.  The lovely snow flake has been bedazzled with lots of glitter, and is a die from Marianne.  I used chalk ink to colour the craft card and paper and also the snowflake, in baby blue.  My image was coloured with Prisma pencils and the sky is a copic pen, couldn't get the colour quiet right would have liked it a bit darker... My chimney has been covered with snowtex and the snow falling is liquid pearls... everything has had lots of gilitter applied!!...the gorgeous ribbon is from the hobby house and those little heart gems were from Cloes crafts that I got from a show.
