Folk art Christmas reindeer in blue, kraft and white

Hi, and welcome to my blog.

Another great challenge by Madja today at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown – the colour challenge this month is to use blue, kraft and white …

I am still in love with the folk Christmas stamp and die set by Sizzix – so cute! I used the pretty reindeer from the set and coloured it using 3 shades of blue alcohol markers, and crumb cake ink for his body, which matched the colour to the kraft card base card beautifully …

Just like my last DT card, I made an inky background using tumbled glass distress ink and a blender brush on whisper white card, and then splashed with perfect pearls and water giving a subtle snowy effect, hard to capture in a photo but looks beautiful in real life …

Again, it was hard to show in the photograph, but I added glossy accents to the baubles, and his little nose, for sparkle and shine, and popped him up on dimensionals. Finally, I stacked the sentiment diecuts and adhered them together …

I hope you like my card for this week. The ladies at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown would love you to join them – do pop by and share your beautiful artwork.

Hi, and welcome to my blog.

It’s world card making day today, and also a new month – which means a new member of the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown team has set the challenges for us this month. It’s Madja’s turn and she has set the first challenge of the month, which is always a sketch…

I used the folk Christmas stamp and diet set by Sizzix to stamp this cute little polar bear …

I made an inky background using tumbled glass distress ink and a blender brush and splashed with perfect pearls and water for a snowy effect …

And added some glittery snowflakes for sparkle…

I hope you like my card for this week. The ladies at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown would love you to joing them – do pop by and share your beautiful artwork.
