Santa Stop Here!

I have another Christmas card to share today, featuring an adorable Lili of the Valley James the Bear stamp called 'Santa Stop Here!'. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, to match the blue & brown shades in the 'Prince Charming' papers (by Recollections/Michaels), then inked around all of the edges using 'Old Paper' and 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Inks. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. There's a touch of sparkle on the snowy ground, made with some Stickles glitter glue.
