Santa Claus Is Coming To Town At The Sisterhood

You better watch out
You better not pout
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town at "The Sisterhood" I have your attention now.....
just be glad you can't hear me sing that tune
or you would be running out the door screaming!!

 Our hostess is Terri this week and you just need to make
a project with a Santa on it...easy peasy!!!

I stamped my Bo Bunny Santa image on Vellum using
Ranger Archival Ink and then embossing with clear embossing
powder to set the ink.

Now the fun part begins....
flip your image over and color on the back side....
I just used some SU markers....
once you are done and flip it back over, you have a subtle beautiful color...
Then I made a frame from a "discarded" part of a Spellbinders cut out
and added some Tinsel glitter I have had forever it seems...
I have a  small "tutorial" for this coming on Saturday....
stop back by and take a "peek"!

You can't tell in the photo, but both the sentiment piece and the ivy flourish
are cut from a shimmery pearl pretty!!

The background paper, which I took forever picking out and then almost
totally covering it up, is from my Christmas scrap bag!!

I added a few gold foil snowflakes to finish!!

I did this technique last year on a tag and loved can see it HERE!!

Now why don't you "POP" on over to The Sisterhood blog and see what my fellow
teamies have made to inspire you  and then join in with us!!

I've just had the most fun visiting today, Diane! Here's another fabulous vintage Santa on vellum. I just love that tinsel glitter and the foil snowflakes, too. I made a couple of Christmas cards today, but now I feel like making some more!
