Warm holiday wishes

Saturday November 21, 2015
 
I have a fun image that I got from my friend Monika from
She has a friend in Java that does line drawings. You can usually find images in Monika's etsy shop.. I got this image Santa Batik and finally found time to make it into a card. He was fun to color and I wanted the colors to be non traditional mainly because of the awesome shirt/jacket he is wearing but keeping it traditional with red and green. I colored him then cut him out and used puffy dots and added him to this embossed tag. I added a cloud 9 brad and a little strip of designer paper behind to give it more of a Christmas feel. I added the Simon says sentiment.  I hope you check out his drawings on Monika's site and also look at some of her awesome cards. Many using his artwork
