Merry Monday #266 Santa

This summer I bought CC Design's "Making a List" Santa image and had to give it a go. Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and Black Licorice; Pop-tone Snow Cone
Stamps - CC Designs JD1074 Making a List; Penny Black 40-164 Christmas Story
Hero Arts CM100 Christmas Messages (ho, ho, ho); Impression Obsession CC177 Wooden Plank
Die - My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 13
Inks - Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa; Tumbled Glass & Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink
Other - Copic Markers; gold gel pen

I stamped the image in black and colored with Copic markers. I then used a black Copic calligraphy pen to emphasize some of the lines and shadows already part of the image. I used a gold gel pen on Santa's glasses; it went a bit wonky but, oh well....I masked the image and stamped the wood plank for a floor. I cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and matted it with black, then adhered to a top fold A2 card stamped with text. I kept it simple with no other embellishments and a quick stamped sentiment.

Please check out Merry Monday for the Santa cards created by the rest of the Design Team and I hope you can join us this week! Thanks for stopping by and for all the kind comments!!
