Merry Monday Vixen

Merry Monday this week has a Tic Tac Toe challenge...


I chose Dry Embossing, Colour with Markers, and Red and Green.  Or I could say Clean and Simple, Colour with Markers and White since there's lots of white.  See what you think.


I found this stamp on sale just before Christmas and just couldn't resist spending the $2.00.

I had bought some Copic Markers a while back after seeing so many beautifully colored images done with them. I finally took them out to try and I had so much fun!  I found inspiration for coloring this image by Jenny Group.  (Have you ever bought a stamp that you loved but then had no idea what to do with it?  This was one of those stamps for me.)

I'm a long way from doing large images, but I'm not scared of the markers anymore.  In fact I can't wait to try some more!

Sarn is having her first Rudolph Day Challenge of 2013.  We have until the last day of the month to submit one festive Christmas entry.  I think I'll go over and join that party too since Vixen is dressed so festively!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Vixen (Hampton Art)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Paper:  Whisper Whtie, Real Red
Other:  Square Lattice EF, Shiny Stickers (Starform)

I've seen what the other designers have done  for Merry Monday and I think you'll enjoy checking out their cards.


Now, don't you want to get a head start on those Christmas cards? 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy!

Your CAS card is wonderful, Bonnie! And it looks as if you had no problem using those Copics! Wonderful job!

Hi Bonnie . . . WOW, I'm not at all surprised your forked out $2 for the stamp. Your colouring with the marker pens is totally brilliant and the little reindeer rectangle makes a great focal point on your card.

Thanks for joning in with Rudolph Day.

Hugs

I really like how festive you made this reindeer look with all those shiny stickers :-)

Good for you, trying out those Copics! They do take a certain amount of practice, and they are different from the SU markers! Your image is lovely and I think it is set off nicely by the white embossed background!
