Coloring White

Hi all!  It's my day to post on the Make It Crafty blog.  Do you struggle with coloring white?  I know I do.  Sometimes I just want to leave it uncolored, but then it doesn't have any depth.  Christmas is coming, and you know what that means - snow, Santa's beard and fur trim....you're right, more coloring white!  I thought the Jolly Santa would be perfect for practice.  The coloring areas are nice and large, so you can get a running jump at coloring white. Here's my image colored with my cheat sheet.  I like the creamy color for his hair and the blue-ish tones for the fur trim.  I used tiny flicks for the fur trim to try to keep the texture. 


You know I had to finish off the big guy with some flowers and glitter so here's my finished card:
