Reindeer! I have, um, a few reindeer stamps. In fact, I have one somewhat similar to the image in the challenge badge. I didn't use that one. ;)
I thought I'd show off the *cute* card first:
Despite already having reindeer stamps, I couldn't resist this Lawn Fawn set. In my defence, the set has penguins, too. Oh wait, I probably have more penguins than reindeer. ANYWAY. The reindeer, sled and Santa hat are all watercoloured. The sky was sponged with distress inks before I stamped and embossed the trees. Verdigris embossing powder is one of my favourites, and I can't believe how long it's been since I last used it! The trickiest part of the card was stamping the gold sled-pull, but I didn't think I'd like the look of it as much with a white die cut halo. I also edged the main panel with the same gold ink.
Since I kind of like how my little reindeer look, I'm also adding this to the current Just Us Girls challenge to use watercoloring. Also to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Christmas challenge.
I'll be back in a bit with a different style of reindeer card!
