Greetings friends. Have you started making your holiday cards yet? The new Impression Obsession Winter die release has such amazing products. I hope you are inspired by them.
For my card today, I used the new St. Nick die. I love him! I think he is great for cards, but I have some ideas for using him for ornaments or a table decoration. So many possibbilities.....
Cut out the Santa using white, red and black cardstock for his outfit.
Cut out the Santa face, moustache and beard using watercolor paper.
To color the Santa face, edge the sides of his face with the Blush colored Zig marker and then soften towards the center of the face using a waterbrush. Remember, if you aren’t getting a gradient of color, wipe off your waterbrush and continue to blend. You want to have the center of the face have very little color.
Dab a little of the Tea Rose Zig marker to the face to create cheeks. You can soften the edges of the cheeks if needed with a waterbrush.
Color the nose with Tea Rose Zig marker
Glue scrap of black cardstock behind the eyes
Color the outside edges of the beard with gray marker and soften with waterbrush towards the center of the beard.
Color the top of the mustache with gray marker and soften with the waterbrush towards the bottom of the mustache.
