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!
