Santa’s little Helper… Wait, what?


Santa's little HelperToday I have an extra long card (9″) for you. Santa and his moose are already very tired, so they hired some happy robots to help: Santa’s little helper reinvented 🙂

For this card I used following sets:

First I stamped all the images, cut them out, and colored them with Copic markers (that took some time). I didn’t do anything fancy, just basic coloring with two to three shades per image. After I was done, I layered the background paper on top of some Lawn Fawn “Let’s Polka” paper. To have some interest in the background, but not too much I added some clouds and mountains. For the clouds I used a Dreamweaver Picasso Tool and flicked with a BG0000 Copic marker over the wavy part. For the mountains I used a regular pencil, drew the mountain line, and added some shading with E000. This way the background is not completely white, but it doesn’t distract from the scene.

Now it was time to place Santa’s little helper onto the card. Because the robots do all the work, our little moose is able to rest and enjoy a hot chocolate next to the fire.

One robot is juggling the presents (let’s hope that nothing breaks).

And the two other robots are already taking care of the sleigh. Even Rudolph’s nose is on the right place (red Stickles).

And of course I had to add some Wink of Stella to several hats, the fire, presents, and everywhere where it made sense 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my card with slightly different “Elves” for this year’s Christmas.

This card is part of the MFT Color Challenge #34 and the Simon Says Monday Challenge Gentleman.
