Santa's Little Helper

Hi Guys,
I finally had time to sit and have a play with a couple of little cheeky stamps I bought a couple of weeks ago.
I love this little character I rarely buy Edwin but this one was just soooooo cute.
I liked him so much I even broke into my lace pack I have been stroking but not using :)
The stamps I used are Santa Edwin
glossy accents
The paper is Magnolia vintage christmas Ice Princess
To colour the paper behind the chair I used Distress ink Weathered Wood
Now for the copics
Blue/Greens: BG78, BG75, BG72
Browns: E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Skin: E02, E00, E000, E0000, R20
I also used Puffy Velvet for the fur trim on edwins hat and coat.
I hope you like it.

Hi Mandy, Welcome to blog land! I'm visiting your blog from Lousie (Just love to stamp)blog. What a beautiful gift you gave her. Loved the little knitting needles on the card. I agree with you about the Edwin stamp he is rather cute. I have yet to ink mine up I'm certainly going to get him out of the draw now.
