Slalom Santa by Dr Digi for Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 7th of August, 2020

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Janice.
Welcome to our eighth challenge for 2020.

Our theme is:
Sketch and Embossing

So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must use one of these sketches and include embossing (wet or dry) in your design.

I chose Slalom Santa for my image, which I digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter. 
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11
  • red - R32, R35, R37, R39
  • pants - C3, C5, C7, C9
  • boots - C1, C3, C5, C7
  • skiis - E71, E74, E77, E79
  • ski poles - E23, E25, E27
  • brackets on boots - E23, E25, E27
  • beard - C00, C0, C1
  • white fluffy part of hat - C0, clear Wink of Stella
  • gloves - C0, C1, C3
  • snow - C00, C0, C1, BV00, clear Wink of Stella, colourless blender
  • sky - YR000, R81, BV0000, BV000, B000, B00, BG02, BG45
  • outline on image - BV00
  • outline on paper - V28
I then adhered two pieces of paper - one from Mint Twist and one from Silly Season, both by KaiserCraft on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
I stamped the sentiment "Hurry up, Santa!" from Action Santa by the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy in Versamark ink, so that I could then wet emboss it with Vanilla Sparkle embossing powder by Alison Ellis Design.
I also attached three rhinestones from KaiserCraft.
As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
