Santas Tipple

Wowsers, it's Thursday already people!
I hope you are all having a good week!
Lol, I'm just thinking that my blogposts are a bit like buses! 
None for ages then they all appear at once!
On to my project!
I made a card using a brand new image,
it's called Santas Tipple & is just one of the fantastic 
new set of images available at Just Inklined
I think this would be a great Christmas card for a guy!
As these are pencil drawn, the lines are much softer! I totally love them all! 
The paper is from Southfields Black & Silver Christmas background paper pad.
I used holographic silver mirror card & plain black card
from my stash to matt & layer.
As the lines were soft, I wanted to colour him in with soft colours.
I had a couple of ideas up my sleeve, but this is what I did!
I coloured the image with flexmarkers, adding a pop of colour
with the holly on Santas hat! He's so jolly looking & he
looks like he's looking forward to his tipple too!
The sentiment was made on my PC using a fantastic free font
called White Christmas. I wrapped some twine around the 
card, added a metal snowflake which has been in my stash for 
a very long time & stuck a red self-adhesive gem at the centre.
Thanks for popping by! I always appreciate your visits!
