Santa in Neutral Colors?

I'm switching back to Ellen Hutson's Classroom tags with a feminine twist.  Sharon Harnist created a standard Santa in red and green, accented with a poinsettia and pretty green trim.  Because I loved the white-on-white first tag, I've been thinking how I might "neutralize" the colors of Christmas just a little.   White on white wouldn't work well with a Santa stamp, so I chose light-colored watercolor markers to ink Tim's Santa stamp, misting the inked stamp with Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold.   The flower isn't a poinsettia, but it continues the neutral tones.  That cute little gold bell and the bow are from a cheap Christmas earring.

Another stunner! I really love this pale palette. So wintry and soft. Very peaceful feeling.

Hello Evelyn
I hope it is fun for you, as it is great for me looking at your Tags.
First, TH Tag is lovely, but it is EH that is the winner in my observation. I love your neutral palette, it has the feeling, for me anyway of comfort and softness and it also has a tactile quality as well which I really like.
