Santa Season: Day 25 a little early

Merry Christmas to all!

Here's my last Santa card for the season - a little early as I will be celebrating with my amazing family tomorrow. I have had the image of the little girl for absolutely ages and never quite knew what I was going to do with it. Surrounding the little tyke with images of Santa seemed a good start.

I wanted to enter the One Layer Wonder Challenge at Inkurable Stampers this month so I decided to do a variation on a Technique Junkies technique called Block Collage. My twist was to not use a square mask and to color the central image. Usually this technique is done with a monochromatic palette.

I Believe in Santa Claus
Stamps: little girl (Inka Stamps - now available from Scrolls Work); postage Santa and framed vintage Santa (Stamp Francisco); hooded Santa (Queen's Dresser Drawers); Santa with fur hat (Artistic Outpost)
Cardstock: Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento); Cranberry Crisp (Stampin Up); Fired Brick (Ranger Distress Ink)
Copics: B00, B02, R24, R27, R29, E00, E02, E11, E15, G14, G19, YR23, YR24
Technique: Block Collage (Technique Junkies)

I hope that Santa puts lots of lovely stamps and inky goodness under your tree this year!
