Curiously Splattered

I'm combining challenges once again, it's that time of year so much to do and so little time LOL. My Christmas card is for the following challenges:-
Compendium of Curiosities Challenge with Linda - Alcohol Ink Splatter
The Sunday Stamper Challenge with Hels - Santa Claus
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Whatever Makes You Happy
I love Christmas, not all the work but I do enjoy decorating the tree and watching my children open their presents and I love giving presents at Christmas, hence I have made another Christmas Card to add to my growing list of people to send to.  I have used my favourite Santa Claus for Hels' challenge this week, the ink splatter in the background for Linda and the Compendium of Curiosities challenge and something that makes me happy for Simon Says Stamp and Show.
I did not want too many colours so stuck to blues and a little pearl mixative for the technique in the background.  I added hand stitching around the heart to lift it from the page, added a co-ordinated floral, sentiment and some silver nail heads to complete.  Have a great Wednesday everyone, Tracy x x
