The Twisted Sister challenge this week was to use a Santa image. This one is my favorite, because of the twinkle in his eyes. Stamped in Creamy Caramel and watercolored, his hat is flocked in red, and eyebrows in gray. I used Flower Soft for the brim of his cap. His glasses are trimmed in silver gel pen, and there is CE on the lenses.
Thanks for looking!

Wow, this Santa reminds me of the "real" one they used to have in the store downtown when I was a kid. Yup, thats him, and you have done a fantastic watercoloring job on him!! I can see the twinkle in his eye!! The choice of textures on here is interesting and captivating - the fibers, the striped ribbon, the flocking, the embossing with the glitter, and the the diecuts - what a great array of different looks - you really cranked it up for this card, Pat!! This is magnificent!! LYMI!

Wowzer! Love this Santa! Well, I love them all really. Your water coloring is beautiful and the swirly thingies in the corner are the perfect touch!
