Stackable Santa


I love this Stackable Santa that I drew for High Hopes while I was still working for them! I stamped him on 140 lb. cold press water color paper by Canson using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I colored him with Twinkling H20 paints (which I LOVE).
I added Stickles on his belt buckle and clear Spica glitter on the ribbon of the gifts (doesn't show at all in the photo).
I did the sketch myself (I'm sketch challenged usually) and I think its all right!
I hand printed the saying on the Spellbinders tag.
I know for sure you can find this Santa here or here and I have put a new link box on my sidebar (under my profile) with all the (known to me) places where you can order High Hopes Stamps.


Have a great day and God bless you!

  19. Wow what a great and jolly santa!
    I love your colouring, maybe we could do with a tutorial from you on H20's, as I use them all the time but being new to cardmaking I'm still an amateur with them.
    Happy crafting
