The week after Release is always a fun week to create with all your new stamp sets. The new Sentimental Christmas are perfect for the Santa, I Believe set. I had so many requests a few weeks ago for a little tutorial on how to color this Santa I thought I would give you a few tips. Here are the things you will need:
I took my Santa's face and put it on a large block. Then I brayered the Distress Ink all over the stamp. I put my paper on a craft foam pad and stamped the image. This gives it a clean crisp image. Laura Fredrickson had given me this team last year.
As you can see he is now ready to color. I chose the Flourishes Flesh Tone Copics Collections
Only color the shaded areas. Don't color the white parts. I then added some Prisma Pencil highlights. I used Scarlet Lake on his chin and lips for added depth. I took a Cool Grey Prisma Pencil and started to add dark lines to the eyes and glasses. I colored in the eyes with Copics B04. By adding the grey pencil I think it defines the eyes and glasses.
I used the newly released Sentimental Christmas stamp set for my sentiment. I also used the black rhinestones and pretty wrinkled ribbon Flourishes has in their store.
