Day 7...

...of the "Catch the Bug" 12 days of Christmas.

The song line is - "Seven Swans a swimming" but the challenge is to use the given photo as inspiration - toughy one this.

I really don't find it very easy to come up with ideas that are 'inspired' by a photo as my mind tends to be a bit too literal.
I looked at the photo for a while and decided to just take on-board the idea of a central subject and a carpet of fir. This is what I came up with...
Another Bugaboo digi image - this time a cutie of a Santa.
The image is coloured with Copics and any 'furry' bits on Santa have been stickled whilst the tree has been highlighted with a Stardust gel pen to give a bit of a frosty shimmer.
The fir sprigs were punched with a Martha Stewart punch from aqua/blue CS. I attached them to the card using stickles and then added a bit more to give a hint of snow.

That's day 7 sorted..................
