Faster than a speeding bullet...It's not Superman...It's Santa!
Sometimes I just like to torture myself. I just wanted a better Santa than I have found on the carts I have: Winter Frolic, Paper Doll Dress Up, Joys of the Season... even 3 Birds on Parade has a Santa! I wanted a 1970s Santa from my childhood.... so I looked to the Superman cartridge!
Using the Santa head from the Christmas solutions cart, and the body of Clark Kent on Superman, I created my 'Santy' ornament.
I used small brads for his buttons and cut little green mittens for his hands. I inked to give him a little shape.
I cut his head from Christmas (solutions cart) at 1-3/4" and flipped it so he would look in the other direction. Liquid Applique gave him his beard and mustache. I used a Zig Millenium 01 pen to draw in his face.
I used the black shoes and pant legs from the original cut for his boots. I applied Ranger Glossy Accents and directed heat on the boots with my embossing gun until the chemical boiled. That is how I got this snowy residue on his boots!
I hand-cut a bag for his bundle of toys from glitter paper. I traced the whole completed figure, cut it out, and glued it in place to finish the back. I used Martha Stewart's tiny little hole punch and threaded the hole with gold metallic narrow cord.
This ornament, finally completed, makes me smile! I love the way Clark has transformed! It is my final challenge project on Doxieluv's Spectacular Circle Online Swarm. Thank you for looking at my project!
