Must Be Santa by Sharon Harnist

Hello Pink Ink Fans -- Sharon here today.  Whether we are ready for it or not, 
Christmas is just around the corner!  And with the stores already decked out 
in holiday cheer, I can't help but get in the Christmas spirit when I see all the 
pretty decorations!  And now you will probably be humming this song, just like I 
was when creating this card!

Isn't this Pink Ink Must Be Santa #6109H image the sweetest?!!  And with my rekindled love of watercolor, I couldn't wait to stamp it onto and an Inchie Arts 3-inch white Art Square and color it up!  I black heat embossed the image and then used Peerless watercolors to color it.  The matboard Art Square holds up very nicely to watercolor -- no warping and the colors blend very nicely!

After the watercolors dried, I added White Wink of Stella to the white parts of Santa's suit, hat, mustache, and boot cuffs -- hopefully you can see the pretty shimmer in the darkened photo above.

To finish the card, I layered the watercolored Art Square onto a Taylored Expressions Postage Stamp die cut from Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock, tied Peppermint twine around the bottom, and popped the image up on foam pape. The card front was also watercolored using a brick stencil on watercolor paper.

Thanks so much for joining me today!  ~ Sharon
