I am really not sure what this manatee is doing in my digi collection. I must, at some point, have won it or bought it, which means that at some stage in my life I must have thought, "I know exactly what I need - an image of a Christmas manatee. One with bits of Elastoplast on his tail." I'm a bit worried about what I must have been drinking at the time....
Anyway, I think the doleful looking fellow works very well with some of the sentiments on the Dylusions Christmas sentiment sheet. I printed him out and, following the advice of several commenters when I had a problem colouring digis with Promarkers, left him to dry for 24 hours before colouring him. Result - no smudging. Thanks to everyone who suggested it. After colouring, I cut him out and finished his hat trim and beard with Wink of Stella.
The die cut "flowers" are from the Kanban set I sorted out last week. The larger flower was white but I coloured it with a yellow distress ink pad.
