Stars and Santa for Merry Monday

I'm trying to get back into the crafting swing of things after the last couple of hectic weeks I've had so today I sat down and played along with the Merry Monday challenge.

This Santa with the stars was the perfect image to use for this weeks sketch. I used gold Stickles to fill in the stars for a little extra "oomph" and the main image panel is popped up with dimensionals. Santas hat, part of his coat and hair are lightly colored with Going Gray.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Star Santa
Paper: Crumb Cake, Naturals White, Deck The Halls DSP
Ink: Black StazOn, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Going Gray, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Gold Stickles,Watercolor Pencils, dimensionals, aquapainter
