Beach Santa

P1060977Hello and welcome

I have had so much fun playing with some amazing images the last few days.

This one uses  Art Impressions – Tropical Christmas stamp set. Living in Australia where Christmas is always hot, this image just jumped out as a bit of fun!

I watercoloured the images, cut them out and popped them up on a simple background I watercoloured to represent the beach. I used Distress Inks as well as a little white acrylic paint, as well as Wink of Stella on the baubles before adding Glossy Accents to them and the lights around the trees.

The wonky rectangle is from Stamplorations and the sentiment is from Stampingbella – Rudolph, the Christmas Lights and the chicks.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. Lucky you – 2 comments from me LOL. Ditto from above but will say how fabulous the surf looks – so real and great blending on the sand. Looks like Santa is going to give out gifts to the children on the beach. Have a Merry Christmas Helen and Thanks for joining us over at HLS Christmas Challenge and on a personal note – Thanks for all your wonderful comments on my blog this year.

  2. What a fun Christmas card ! I never think of Santa on the beach (only once retired !) but as he goes everywhere…I’m sure he finishes with this part of the world to rest a little bit ! Thanks for sharing and for playing along at Uniko !
