Less is More Challenge #150: one layer Santa
For my card I cut Schut hotpressed smooth watercolour paper to cardsize. it's 300grams.
I've used the cat from Katzelkraft les chats russe, I love him, he's so grumpy and perfect for this card in my opinion. You know how humans instist of dressing up their pets for Christmas cards? mine won't let me, but I got my fix with this card haha.
The hat was gone one second after this one picture I was allowed ;-)
The santa hat is from a Lili of the Valley stamp (james Christmas tree) and I had to do a lot of masking, stamp positioning etc to get it all in the rigt spot as they're rubberstamps. Drew in the bits that went missing,
On hindsight drawing in a Santa hat might have been easier ;-). I chose this oversized hat as I thought it might have been the real Santa's hat once and it would be too big for a cat....
The sentiment is from Hero Arts get merry stampset.
I've used StazOn for all the stamping.
And for the colouring Distress inks: runsty hinge and vintage photo and twisted citron
for the cat, the hat and shadow is hickory smoke, barn door and fired brick.
Dried is with my heat gun and then masked off the cat to spatter some barn door and mowed lawn as confetti on the background
