Santa Sketch

      This is our last challenge for the year at Crafty Catz and our next one will begin on Friday, January 12.  Our theme is always Anything Goes and usually we have an optional theme to go with that, but this time it's just Anything Goes.

     I chose to use this delightful, clip art sketch of Santa and I printed it in a very light grayscale.  I colored with Sanjoki markers, then cut the image with a large die from QuicKutz.  The sentiment was added before printing the image.  I hand tied the bow, using 1/8" ribbon.  The background has embossed gold stripes.


     Come play along with us this week if you can pull yourself away from the the madhouse of the holiday preparations.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
