Santa with a Mug Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Santa with a Mug Card.

For this one I used three gorgeous Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Mr. & Mrs. Calus' (Santa and candies), 'Winter Wishes' (sentiment) and 'Coffee Time' (coffee beans).

I stamped Santa on a watercolor paper, colored his face and hands with colored pencils and blended colors with dry paper stump. Then I colored the rest of the image in watercoloring technique, using Distress Inks. I fussy cut Santa, colored edges with black pen and covered parts of Santa's coat with Pearl Maker.

Then I stamped coffee beans and candies with VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad directly on a card base, dried it and created Watermark Effect.

I glued piece of a Jute Ribbon on the card base, added 3D foams behind colored Santa image and placed him on the card, stamped sentiment on a solid wood chip oval with Ground Espresso Distress Ink and glued it on the card. I also glued an open wood chip oval around the stamped one. At the end I added final touch to the image with my white pen and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions are 107 mm x 139 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
