Smeared & Smudged - Steampunk Santa

Yes, Christmas has come and gone, but it's still December so I took on the Freaky Freebie Challenge, rolled up my sleeves, got out some ink and paper and got busy with this free digi (for a couple more days) from Smeared Ink. 

In keeping with his steampunkishness I went for the look of metal and leather.  Santa's sleigh was painted with tarnished bronze paint, the runners and watch parts were painted with silver paint.  I added some "leather" (i.e. brown Copics) goggles, reins and bag of goodies.  A bit of silver Distress Stain around the edges and snowflakes with a silver pen finished it off.

And on an entirely different note here's an ATC for a book page swap.  The background is from a cookbook (the recipient likes to cook). 

Thinking maybe I need to make a canvas like this for my kitchen!  Think my tots will get the hint?  ;)


  1. Love this; the sentiment is hilarious !

  2. Steampunk Santa is delightful, his goggles are just fabulous. Love the ATC too but sadly, I doubt whether your tots will take the hint at all (well you could always bribe them I suppose......it occasionally worked for me). Hope you have a very Happy New Year Julie. Hugs, Anne x


I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what you think about this post. Have a spectacular day!
