Christmas in July - Tropical Santa

This is my fifth entry at the challenge at Catch the bug....
I love this challenge!!! In my country, Argentina,  Christmas comes in summer and we all love to be in the beach, eating fruit salad, ice creams and everything very summery!!!

I colored the freebie Tropical Santa with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils, then with foami tape I gave volume to the feet and the face (although you can't notice it in the pictures, don´t know why...). I mounted it in a blue mat (cut with a Labels two, Spellbinders Nestabilities).

I used stripe papers in very bright colors (printer soyuz) and mounted on a blue cardstock. I cut with two different punches suns in different sizes to embellish it and give the idea of heat and tropical.

I added a ho ho ho sentiment placed in a blue mat.

Hope you like it :)


Catch the bug: use the freebie and use tropical colors.
