Dancing Reindeer and Santa Christmas Card

Just sharing a card I made using this cute Katzelkraft Stamp featuring Dancing Reindeer and Santa. I used my Koi Watercolors. I haven't used watercolors in a long time so I'm a little rusty, but it was fun to play with them again. I just cut the watercolor paper down so it would fit on a 4.25 x 5.5 card with a matching purple base. I added a white pen for accents. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Card Challenge #26

Welcome to Christmas Card Challenges. I'm sorry to say that after 8 years, this will be the last challenge. I hope you will be able to join us one last time. We have a Candy Cane photo challenge this week.

For my card I used a sparkly patterned paper background and framed it with some white and red paper. I used a stitched rectangle die to put the sentiment in. The sentiment was cut from red glitter paper. It was an easy and fun card to make. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Card Challenge #25

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. This week we have an Inspiration Photo challenge with Cats.  It's time to get your Christmas Cards made!! 

To make this card I used the Katzelkraft stamp set called Russian Cats. They have such funny expressions. I also used the Accessories set that coordinates with all the Katzelkraft animal stamp sets. I colored the kitty and the background with Comic Markers. I added some glittery ornaments and the sentiment is from a Carabelle stamp set. I'm linking to all these stamps below. They are all available in my online store Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #42 - Silhouette

It's time for another Mixed Media Monthly Challenge! This month our theme is Silhouette and our sponsor is the awesome stamp company Visible Image from the UK.

I used the two stamp sets and stencil below on my card.

Own Kind of Beautiful

Scripted Streets

Cosmic Skies

To create my card I started the background with Distress Crayons. I gessoed the card first, 
put the crayons on and then rubbed them in with my fingers. 
Then I put the stencil on top and sprayed water. Some water got under the stencil 
and left a very random patterned. I kept spraying with water to get it lighter. 
I really like the kind of snowy feel it has.

Here's the finished card. I stamped with Versafine Black Ink and a MISTI so I could get full coverage on the images. I mounted it to a 5 x 7 black card base and added some black pearls.
