I've gone pretty traditional with the colours of red & green. The paper reminded me of Christmas jumpers and given Chris' fabulous Reindeer onesie - I thought I'd go with the Christmas clothing theme. So come on be honest... who has a Christmas Onesie or jumper?? I will admit I have a Bunny rabbit onesie!! We have a tradition of going to the pub Christmas eve and then coming home to eat cheese & wine wearing our onesies...I can just picture Chris sat with us eating his Pudding! Or even better I could get my other half a Reindeer Onesie to wear ... (Ha think he may kill me!!)
This card was really simple to make. I coloured the image but added a little extra detail using glaze on the pudding and his nose. I also used some frosted lace stickles on his antlers to give them a bit of texture and a silver pen to colour the spoon so it shines. I die cut the frame using a Spellbinders nestibilities from the Websters pages paper collection called Cuddle Up and laid this over the image using 3d foam.
The greeting is made up of stickers from Doodlebug and I added a 3 co-ordinating green homemade enamel dots. Finally I added the felt Holly leaves which I bought from Hobbycraft.
I used these promarkers and flexmarkers -
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft peach, coral & spice. Powder blue eyes.
Nose - Poppy, Ruby & Cardinal red.
Onesie - Cinnamon, Cocoa, Burnt sienna & Henna
Belly & antlers - Light Fawn, Tan & Saffron
Touch of Cocktail pink on ears & cheeks
Hooves - Warm Grey 4, 3 & 1
Pudding - Cinnamon, Walnut, Aubergine & Burgundy.
Holly - Forest & Lush Green.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Hope you like Chris and don't mind me posting Christmas cards... its not far off now though you know!!
See you in the week,
