Santa in the city

Santa's flight is one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets, because the image is just so iconic, and it lends itself to so many techniques.  Although the image is very large, it takes very little time to color, and and works with a lot of techniques.  However, I feel like all my cards that I make with it are the same - Santa flying through the sky.  I was telling my friend and amuse studio demonstrator about this, and she handed me another stamp set, love is in the air, which has a nice cityscape.  I decided to give it a try.

The images are embossed in silver, and I colored them first with a white pen, then went over the white with glitter pens.  Although I wouldn't usually use so much black on a card, it really makes the color pop.

This looks great, works very well. I like the contrast between the lines of the buildings and the curve of the sleigh stamp.
