Vintage Santa

Morning peeps, a busy day ahead for me I think as I am awaiting the arrival of my two Grandsons, the noisiest one being Zachary, gosh hes got a big set of lungs.....lol. I also have the roofing builders here and I'm waiting for an argument as they have put the wrong dry ridge tiles on and I've told them that they need to take them down and I've also got to take my Mum to a community social group that she is starting today and not really wanting to go.......on the plus side the sun is shining and the sky is blue.

I recieved my new stamps from Crafty Individulas last week and fell in love with this Traditional Santa one CI396, I like jolly Santas but I love the more traditional ones better. I used Matte Glue n Seal  on the Santa after I had coloured him in with Distress inks, I so lurvvvvve this technique as you can create more interesting backgrounds as well as additional stamping without masking off the image......soooooo easy to do but so effective. Lots of heat embossing with Frantage and embossing powders, tree and snowflake are Marianne designs and the tag and sentiment die are from Sizzix Tim Holtz. I over heated the snowflake but I liked the effect so I decided to keep it on the tag.








Off to play with my Grandsons
