This is All you Get...

When I saw the new Christmas sentiments from Hero Arts I knew they would be perfect for my eldest son, its fast approaching the 1st December and he's STILL so bah humbug.  

You'd think with me being a massive Christmas lover some of it might have rubbed off but nope... he even has a jumper that says and I quote 'Merry Kiss-My Arse', its a good job I love him and appreciate his off the wall humour.




I've used MFT Jingle All the Way Santa and coloured him with Prisma pencils.  I've really got into no-line colouring and I love the way this Santa pops off the card, although I did ground him before he got too carried away with jumping.




The sentiment is just stamped in black Versafine and despite using a ruler, it still looks a little wonky but Santa took to long to re-do.  Speaking of Santa I've added a little Wink of Stella to his pompom and buckle, finishing with some highlights.


I think my handsome Scrooge might just crack a Christmas smile!

  1. I'm with your son, at least until Thanksgiving (here in the US), lol! After that, I'm a true believer! Darling card, and a great sentiment, Claire. Great coloring and shading - something I cannot do for the life of me using colored pencils; I'm so envious of your talent! But that sentiment has me smiling...It's really rather amusing. Love this card. xo Bev
