Non-Traditional Christmas Colours

Another Christmas Card for you today and this one uses probably my favourite non-traditional colour combination of greys, black and gold.

The stamp is the cute Whiff Of Joy Quiet Santa and the glittery paper is from the DCWV All Dressed Up Paper Stack which you can get from Quixotic Paperie for half price at the moment.

I’ve coloured Santa with my PrismaColor pencils and Sansodor and used Shimmerz Paints Pixie Dust Blingz to sparkle Santa’s fur trim.

The gold paper, flower and swirls have are from SEI papers and the swirls are flocked – doesn’t show up too well in the picture I’m afraid.

Have a gold filled Tuesday

Ink – VersaFine Onyx black
Colouring – PrismaColor Pencils; Sansodor
Paper – SEI; DCWV
