Santa and those crazy birds.....

Hello there. I'm back with a Christmas card today.

When I looked at this weeks's LIM challenge and saw that it was Santa and one layer I knew I wanted to make this card. I hope I manage to link it on time.

So I stamped the hat first and masked it off and then I stamped the bird. I masked off the wing and then I stamped the candy stick. All stamping was done in Black archival ink.

I then stamped the sentiment and then the star which I embossed in black dancing glitz wow powder for a bit of bling. All stamps used are from stampers anonymous by Tim Holtz.
I coloured it in with distress ink and a damp brush. I used: abandoned coral, fossilized amber, espresso coffee and hickory smoke.

I finished the card off by adding some glossy accents to eyes, beak and stick. And that is my CAS card done, Theresa xx

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
