Action Santa


Hello again!  If you’re looking for my The Cat’s Pajamas Post, please scroll down. 


Alrighty friends, I know you are just going to LOVE today's set from Power Poppy!  It’s called Action Santa, and this guy just makes me smile.  Here’s what Marcy had to say about the set:  

Inspired by vintage Christmas cards that showcase Santa springing in to action every which way. What a versatile fella. He seems to engage in every sport from riding the waves to slamming a tennis ball to revving up a Harley! Our Action Santa set features Santa cruising in an old-school scooter as he races through the snowdrifts to bring good tidings on the double. A second large image features the jolly jingler mid-air as a stylish skier catching major air. Accents create a snowflake-sprinkled mountain scene, plus lots of coordinating "action-packed" sentiments. This one’s gonna be a keeper!  Includes 14 images.  

Seriously, SO cute right?  There’s just something about a RED scooter, so for this design I had to flip the colours for Santa and the scooter and make him a rich green and the scooter red.  It is a really fun image to colour up.  He’s got some kraft paper wrapped packages and a tree in the back, so wherever he’s going, he’s prepared!  
I added some cute wood veneer arrows to really give you the feeling of movement and direction and a bit of twine and a wood button to finish it off.  



Here’s the Copics I used to colour him up.  

And now you can pop on over to the rest of the Bloom Brigade showing off Action Santa today!
