Crafty Individuals - Christmas Cards

I would like to share some Christmas cards I have made using the new
Crafty Individuals Christmas Reindeer stamp - CI-358.
Jean shared them on the CI blog some time ago.

This first one used DP from the CI Background Papers Book 2 Christmas pad.

The image was stamped with coffee archival onto a dusky pink card then I used some distress markers and a water pen to colour the trees and flourishes then I used the picket fence DM and water brush for the deer. Tissue paper was covered (on the back) with broken china distress stain and some of the distressed edges of the mounts were inked with walnut stain and stickles.

This second card is very simple. Again I painted the deer and antlers with DMs and a water brush and added picket fence over the top to give that cool glow.

More distress marker painting, then layered up with collage pieces to complete. The writing was added by stamping onto tissue paper and adhering to the DP. I used a CI stamp for the clock and added real watch hands to it.

I hope your week is going well and you are getting some creative time for yourself.

Take care.
