Santa's Magic Ladder

Santas magic ladder close

Santa really is magical in this whimsical scene which I created for Squigglefly. I call it "Santa's Magic Ladder". Santa defies gravity in this one, and all rules of logic too! ;-)
It's just a fun little image and colors up fast too!

I colored him with the following Copics:
E0000, 000, 01, 04,
R22, 24, 27, 29, 39, 59
BV20, 23
W3, 5, 7, 8
100 black
E50, 53

Candy cane ladder:
R24 with BV0000 for shadows

and for the gifts:
R59,08,
G02, 05, 07,
YG17, 67
RV19, 23
Y26

Background was done with YR000 and then I sponged around the edges with a similar colored dye ink.

I used my R46 to create the striped frame on a white mat. I just used the chiseled end of the Sketch marker to doodle those lines.
This card jingles because of the little bells I added, and when I showed my daughter she started singing, "Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring-ting-tingling too; come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you..." Really put me in the mood for Christmas!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Bless you!
