Vintage Santa

Edit: Betsy's having a Vintage Findings challenge and I thought I could maybe squeeze this post in for the challenge. I'm so short on time and I'm not sure if Betsy will accept this entry but I'll give it a try anyways. :)

Edit: I forgot to announce the winner of my Babuška digi stamp....Tina! Email me and I'll send her to you!

Hi!
Hope you are all well. I'm just popping in to share this tag I made using my Vintage Santa digi stamp. All my stamps are hand drawn.



This image is super easy to colour...what's there to colour...the hat! ;) I coloured him with Copics...addes some red glitter to his hat. I distressed his beard using PTI's Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo and a Q-tip...because it's a very small surface I had more control using a Q-tip.


I had these PTI stamped leaves from this set left over and they sort of reminded me of mistletoe...sort of ;)



I received this in the mail last week.....so proud of it! There's still time to enter my Mr. Smiles Giveaway here.




Anyways....my Vintage Santa is available at my Etsy store but I'd love to give one away so if you're interested just leave me a comment.
Have a great day!
Pin It!

O, this is me for the babuška image!!! I am so, so happy. And your santa is so awsome. I love him, because it doesn`t require lots of colouring and is great for quick cards! I think it should this image should be in rubber, too.

What a beautiful tag!! This year, for the 1st time, I'm making my own cards and tags - excited but BOY OH BOY was it alot of work. I'm made my own photo cards and paper pieced a scene using Lawn Fawn's Cozy Christmas (check out my blog). Now, I've just got to add the pics. Tags are next. Thanks for the inspiration!!!!!

Hi Jane!
Would love to purchase the Santa digi stamp, but the Etsy shop does not show it, and when I clicked on the above link, it said such an item does not exist. Any suggestions? THX
