Santa's Workshop

This is a very simple Christmas decoration. It is about 10" tall and has a ribbon so that it can hang on the wall or a doorknob.
It is a wonderful, vintage image that I purchased at The Vintage Workshop. I love that place! They have so many great images for all occasions. You buy a set and then download that. You can now print the images as many times as you want which is great for mulitiple cards. One way you buy them is that you print them in their actual size, the other way to buy them lets you be more creative with the images.

I printed this image on Worldwin's Treasures paper. The reason I picked this particular paper is it has a slight texture so my finished project looks like it is printed on canvas and the inks from my home printer look just amazing on this paper. I did glue that to chipboard to stiffen it.
You can see in this little snippet, that I then took Stickles and Tulips, Glitter 3-D Fashion paint and accented the features on my picture. I used the Glitter 3-D Fashion paint on most of the images where I just wanted some sparkle but I still wanted the image and the details to show through. I used that on his hat, the window frames, the sleigh, his shoe buckles and more.
Thanks for visiting, Linda
