Your Next Stamp Santa’s Helper ~ Zig Clean Color Real Brush ~ Christmas card

Hey everyone,

Moving right along on making Christmas cards, I made this one inspired by YNS Sketch and Color Challenge #77 using Santa’s Helpers stamp set from Your Next Stamp.

Your Next Stamp Santa’s Helpers stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and patterned papers handmade Christmas card.

I wanted to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers for this card so I began by stamping all of the images onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx black ink. I also embossed the images using black embossing powder, so that I can have a nice dark outline.
Using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, I used the following color combinations:

Chimney: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Santa suit: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Santa boots and belt: 095 Dark Gray and 010 Black for shadows
Santa hats: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Penguins: 095 Dark Gray and 010 Black for shadows
Penguins beaks and feet: 070 Orange
Penguin bellies: 091 Light Gray
Snow: 091 Light Gray and 099  Cool Gray 1

To put this card together, I fussy cut the images out and adhered them onto an A2 sized card base using the sketch template and patterned paper from Recollections called Christmas Noel paper pad. I generally leave my cards blank on the inside, however, the sentiment in the stamp set was just begging to be added and since I had an extra penguin image I added the little guy inside to complete my card.
