Merry Christmas Eve!! There’s one more special card to go after this, but today I wanted to remind all the kids out there to go to bed nice and early – because Santa’s getting that sleigh packed up!

In my 24 tags series in November, I used watercolor pencil with Vintage Santa (see that post HERE) – this time, Copic marker! I created strong lighting by making dark areas around Santa, including adding a hint at his body on the left, and a wall on the right. The shadow moves across his beard, too – and I used a bunch of white pen to add more swirls and hairs, as well as reduce the effect of all the black lines in the stamp.
How about TWO more giveaways! I’ll be back on New Year’s Even to announce the winner chosen randomly from commenters…good luck!
