Rudolph the Skating Reindeer

 

Are you tired of Christmas cards yet?  I hope not as I do have a couple more to share with you.

Today’s card was made from the first image that I colored in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I used Rudolph the Skating Reindeer from Stamping Bella.  To color this image I used my Polychromo AND my Prismacolor pencils.

I stamped my image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some Strathmore 300 Bristol paper.  I love using this paper with I colored pencils.  I have listed the colors that I used at the bottom of my post.  I cut Rudolph out using the matching die.  I love how most of the stamps from Stamping Bella have matching dies.

Since Rudolph is skating, of course I had to create a scene for him.  I first stamped the trees from Gina K’s Christmas Greenry stamp set.  I thought the trees looked a little sparse for my scene, so I decided to add Copic markers to make the trees larger and fuller.  Well, I seem to have gotten a little carried away as you can no longer see the trees that I stamped.  LOL!  I even added more trees in the background.  When I was all done, I think it looks okay.  The colors I used for the trees are G19, YG67, G09, G46, and G29.

I then added some “ice” to the bottom of the card using B0000, B000, and BG000.  For the sky, I used BG0000 and BG000.  I wanted some snow or some “sparkle” to the background and around the ice, so I added some Wink of Stella Clear to the trees and around the ice.  I thought it turned out pretty sparkly.  I also added some white sparkly enamel dots.

Since Rudolph was “skating” I thought it would be fun to add an Action Wobbler to the back of Rudolph.  The mini ones worked perfectly.

Sorry the video isn’t very clear!

I used the greeting from the stamp set and heat embossed it using Detail Gold embossing powder from Gina K.  I really love her embossing powders.  They are beautiful and are very fine for those little sentiments.

The background paper is from Hobby Lobby.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!

    Well actually the trees look fantastic! They really show off your cute, wobbly reindeer brilliantly. I rather like those glittery enamel dots too; a great finishing touch!
