Scandanavian Santa

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi amd hello to Penny.  So lovely to have you along.  Hugz to all my followers, friends and lurkers.  Hugz

More fun tutorials over at Marks Finest Papers.  This time it's Monochromatic Layered Stamping.  So I went blue, because I like blue, and used three blue distress inks

I started by putting Stormy Sky DI on my acrylic block, spritzing and stamping on my card.  I have been wanting to try this and this was my first attempt.  Love the effect.  Then I stampd Hero Arts Stunning Snowflakes, also using the Stormy Sky DI.  I stamped the sentiment using Faded Jeans and the santa using Ocean Spray.  I also coloured Santa's hat with the same ink.  Works well cos blue is a traditional Scandanavian colour for St Nicholas.  The stamps are from MFP's Holiday Tags and Dear Santa sets.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
