Believing is seeing...

Hello friends!

This is my last Scenic Saturday post of 2021 and with Christmas only a week away I found myself searching through my Stamping Bella collection for a cute Santa to ink up. When I came across this Santa is Stuck image I knew I had found a winner but he needed a friend so I grabbed the fun Rudolph with a Present on Top and got down to stamping. With Santa trying hard to get down that chimney I could immediately picture the rooftop scene to color him and his reindeer pal into. I started by deciding how high the peak of the roof would be then colored in the area above that line in super dark blues for the sky. For some added interest in that dark expanse I grabbed the BV29 and sketched in silhouettes of a couple pine trees and the bare limbs of a larger tree. This really helped make it look like they are in a neighborhood during this little adventure. Below the roof line I used a handful of lighter blues to color in the snow, adding plenty of texture and shadow around the base of the chimney and the fallen reindeer because it is a night scene and realistically the snow wouldn't look super white at that time. From there all that was left to do was color in the chimney, Santa and the reindeer, which made for a pretty quick scene really. Let's just hope that our poor reindeer can get back up on his hooves and help Santa out of the tight spot he currently finds himself in.  ;)
