A Pop of Color with Santa

The current Power and Spark challenge over at the Power and Poppy blog is all about a pop of color....they want to see us create a black and white project with a pop of color. I thought it was going to be easy but I actually got stumped with this for a bit! I actually created a card before this one but didn't like it and started over, and this card is what came about.

I took the Flowering Santa stamp, stamped it in black and then used a rectangle die to cut it. I used red copics to color in the flowers in Santa's beard and then used my cool grays to color in the rest of Santa's beard and hair.

I cut out another die piece the same size as the image panel and situated that on the red plaid paper background (I spent last week in South Carolina and got to visit Hobby Lobby, this plaid paper is from a paper stack I got there. I wish Hobby Lobby would come to Alaska!), and then I layered the image panel across the black rectangle. I was going to put a sentiment across the front but didn't like how it blocked part of the image so just stamped an image on the inside panel instead.

Thanks for stopping by!
