Sunday Stamps (112) Autumn Danke Card and a Santa with Batik Card

Hallo my Blogland friend, we meet again on Sunday at our brand new challenge at Sunday Stamps  this time we have another sketch challenge:

I simply stamped the background with so many leaves (the same stamp like the main Image), then I choose Batik paper for the second layer. The top Image, I colored it with distress in yellow, orange and brown.

For accent, I gave some glossy accent, it made the leaves look like wet with the water drop in the morning :) I really love this effect :)

The sentiment is German word, means Thanks.

Hope I can inspired you to join our sketch challenge this time :)  just klick HERE to join us :)

I know it is not yet December but I got a lovely Sketch again...see this lovely Santa in Batik clothes...dont you think he looks good in Batik (our traditional cloth in Java, Indonesia)

I colored first the clothes with red then I decided to change the color and I gave yellow on it and voila the color is look like a real Batik in Java...the leaves on Batik I colored with white pen. I drew by my self the grey area and colored with 3 different copic color. The Main Image and the blue background is watercolored. I got new embossing folder with snowflakes and love to use it this time, oh ya I gave also pop corn pen on his hat and bart and around him :)  what do you say is this Santa cute enough with Batik??

  1. Die Herbst/Danke Karte gefällt mir sehr gut. Die "Wassertropfen" geben den Anschein, dass es echte Blätter sind, die gerade von draußen ins Haus gekommen und noch etwas nass sind. Klasse!!!
    Der Batikweihnachtsmann ist toll gemacht!!! Dieser pop vorn pen ist der Hammer!!! Ich liebe ihn, obwohl ich ihn nicht besitze. Er macht das Ganze so lebendig und dreidimensional.
    Beide Werke gefallen mir sehr sehr gut.
    LG Flo
