Santa's Return to the North Pole


Hello!  Back to playing in the snow at the North Pole.  Created this scene with Hero Arts October kit using a dog sled, polar bear, and Santa flying in his sled.  The Mountain background was die cut and sponged with Distress Oxide ink and snow added with Marvy Snow Marker.  The shiny night sky  was made by accident when I spilled Metallic Blueberry Mist on my work desk.  I quickly grabbed some white CS to absorb the spill and now have shiny CS for several skies,  Foreground was made with torn Watercolor paper strips. Stamped the trees and sentiment and added the "Elf" house, sleigh,  sled and bear which were die cut.  Sign Post was fussy cut.  All coloring was done with Copics.  More snow added to trees with liquid pearls and to sky with Stardust Pen.  I imagine Santa is returning to his workshop since he is flying in that direction and the girl in the dog sled is headed there to welcome him home.
