One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #21

Hello!  I know I've been MIA for a bit.  We are in the middle of doing renovations (as I've mentioned before) and while we are a ways off from being done, I finally cleaned up the mess the electricians made when they needed access to my art area.  So, I finally got to make some cards!  So, today over at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge we have a fun challenge for you.  As usual it's anything goes, but the twist this time is Reindeer.  And if you use the twist you could win a prize!

I have a few reindeer stamps and I decided to go with an old one.  I still love this stamp.  Take a look...

The first thing I did was stamp my reindeer (Inkadinkado) and emboss it in white.  Then I masked off my hill and moon.  I sponged on Elderberry, Nautical Blue and some Teal Zeal Memento inks for the sky.  I splattered some water on it and then some white acrylic paint.  Then I stamped my bare branch tree (don't know who made it, it's pretty old) and my pine tree (another oldie, All Night Media) in Versafine black ink.  I removed the masks and stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.  I think this little snowy scene turned out rather well.  :-)

Well, I hope I've inspired you to not only get a head start on your Christmas cards but to join us over at OLCCC.  Remember there's a prize up for grabs if you use the twist.  You really should at least check out the other DT member's projects as they are all fabulous.

I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for visiting.
