Stampin With The Dragon DT plays with Kenny K

Good Afternoon to you all in the land of Blog
This fortnights challenge at Stampin With The Dragon is helping us prepare for Christmas, so with that in mind here is the first lot of excitement of the very special and fabulous sponsor for the new challenge

Elena & Kenny K Digital Downloads

who very kindly gave the DT ladies some fabulous images to work with.

Kenny was so kind to offer the following as prizes:

1st place: 3 images

2nd place: 2 images

3rd place: 1 image

The challenge is to use this lovely sketch

Please pop and see what the fabulous ladies of the Design Team have created to inspire you

This is my DT creation for this week, the first one I created did not use the sketch (missed that bit) so did another too, really enjoyed myself, fabulous images to play with.
This card has a green mirror card base layer and has some lovely papers from a large 12 x 12 stack of GCD Studio papers (A Christmas Stack not sure of the exact name - papers are very similar to those in the Papermania, Silent Night pack but are double sided and so much better for those bigger projects)  Each of the layers has been framed in the mirror card and then the Kenny K Santa has on this one been sort of squeezed a little thinner when inserting him into the word package to allow him to fit the sketch.  I added some little green snowflakes down the side with little red pearls for their centres. The sentiment is a Papermania.
I coloured him with copics and went for the true colour of Santa which is green I believe.  he was fabulous to colour and I used a gel pen to highlight.

This was the creation without the sketch (oops) but to enter the challenge you must, but could not resist showing you all.
This one not following the sketch, I have reversed the colours so the red mirror card as the base layer and then some more of the GCD Studios 12 x 12 stack but using the green's this time.  I added a little lace the snowflakes in the red mirror card with the little green pearls.  The MS punch and the glitter red ribbon with more little pearls to add that finishing touch.
The image again this time in the familiar reds but I have coloured the background in with a Tim Holtz peeled paint ink.

I am entering the following challenges
