Reindeer Trio


I *love* this stamp -- Dasher, Dancer & Prancer -- from Gina K. Designs. It just makes me smile! It was the perfect size to use for today's Sketch Challenge. I also used Gina K.'s Christmas Ball and Peace. The background swirls are from SU!'s Baroque Motifs. The image and sentiment were stamped in Basic Brown ink. I watercolored the reindeer and their antlers with Creamy Caramel ink and an Aquapainter. I used markers to ink up the ornament and stamped one on each side. I traced around the image and covered the ornament with a Sakura Glaze Gloss Clear Pen. It gives dimension and shine without heat embossing! I did some sponging and machine stitching and added ribbon and brads. One more Christmas card completed! :)

Thanks for coming by -- I hope to have more to share tomorrow!
