SShhh...Santa is coming

Hello all,

This stamp and I have a love/hate relationship.  When I first saw it I was in LOVE.   I love everything about it.  I love all the details from the expression on Santa's face, to the snowflakes in the night sky.  LOVE.  I couldn't wait to color it!   When it arrived in the mail,  I inked it up the same day (this never happens).   I pulled out my copics and started coloring.....

I was shocked to find that image isn't complete.  I guess lopsided is a better word.  I had to use my multi-liner to draw in part of the tree and curtains.   My limited drawing talent and some creative cropping (this is why the pillow hangs off the mat) has led to this final result.   In the end, I love the card.   However, there was a lot of head scratching (maybe a few choice words) to get to this point.

I used white gel pen on snowflakes

I love this card, it started off as a white piece of paper and every inch of it is colored with copic.
