One Layer Card with Santa

Over at  The Outlawz Twisted Thursday we have a new Anything Goes challenge for you, this time with the optional twist of One Layer. A lucky randomly drawn winner will get to choose images from our December sponsor, Stitchy Bear.
I've used the grumpy Santa again - you can find the image here. I printed the image onto a kraft base. I masked my Santa before I sprayed the background with white glimmer mist. I didn't color the image, just added a paper pieced beard and some glitter to the fur trims of his hat. I used a snow pen for the ground and stamped some snowflakes, heat embossed with white embossing powder. I also added a doodled frame using a black pen.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Crafty Boots - Snow and Sparkles
2) Christmas Card Challenges - #4 Make it Masculine
3) Here Come the Boys - #66 Anything Goes
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

I love that you haven't added colour to this but used different materials and textures for the white. Really effective.

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season and I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful creations in 2014. Marina

Great idea Pia, and love the idea of misting your page after...and adding the paper pieced beard...turned out

This is a fabulous card Pia, such a good idea to stamp directly onto Kraft and then use glimmer mist to create your background - a brilliant one layer card.

This monochromatic look really suits Santa! And I also love that despite being OLC, they's plenty of textural interest. Hope you had a fun Christmas.
