Santa Stuck in Chimney/ Giveaway

Hi, all! Vladka here today!

Santa ate a little bit too much this year and now he is stuck in chimney. But, reindeers are on the way to save him and to save the Christmas. 
Night sky was made the same as on some of my previous cards. I used different Distress Inks. I started with Peacock Feather, put it on my craft sheet, added some water and press watercolor paper into the wet ink, to get some splodges. Then I dried it with a heat gun and used another Distress Ink, this time Chipped Sapphire and repeat the whole step. The last Distress Ink which I used was Black Soot. If needed I used the same distress ink several times before I get to another color. After everything was dry I used also white watercolor tube and brush to made some paint splatters which look like stars
The roof is made out of kraft paper, which was colored with orange distress ink and after that stamped on it with roofing tiles stamp. Corners are colored with white watercolor tube. Some dies cuts were cut out of kraft cardstock and colored with distress inks and some were cut out of white cardstock. I used Santa Stuck in Chimney die for this. Text is printed on vellum paper.

Love the upside down Santa. He was eventually going to get stuck with all the snacking that he does.

What a super cute and fun card! Too many cookies will do that to you! :-) Beautiful night sky, Vladka! I love Rudolph's expression on this die. Let me tell you ladies, that this give away has made my wish list a mile long :-) This one has just jumped to the top of the list though.
