It's Merry Monday.
Did you know there's only 5 more Mondays before Christmas?
This week's challenge is brought to us by Debbie.
I bought this reindeer die online late last year.
I didn't realize it was so BIG!
The fact that it was a BIGZ die should have given me a clue!
But it was fun to work with.
I used the die to cut out the reindeer then
stamped over the body with the Sanded background stamp
and Soft Suede ink. Using an Aqua Painter, I moved the ink around
to give him a washed look.
I used the So Saffron ink pad and Aqua Painter
to color his antlers.
A little dabbing with some Brown Sugar ink
picked up with the Aqua Painter
gave his antlers the look of texture.
I hunted for some tiny jingle bells but couldn't find them.
So I punched some little circles from snippets of Red Glimmer paper.
They won't jingle, but they will go through the postal service better.
Since I have texture on this, I'm going to take it over to
I have dry embossing and glitter paper.
I told you I'd become addicted to tags!
This has the debossed snowflakes. (I put the adhesive on the wrong side). Oops!
It still works for texture. And there's stamping, watercolor, die cuts, a bell and ribbon.
is open until the 22nd.
There's still plenty of time to join in.
I hope you'll go over to Merry Monday and check out
all the fantastic inspiration the Design Team, and our Guest Designer, Rocky,
have for you.
Thanks for the visit.
