Sweet Stamping Design Team Card - Animals

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime and it's only 2 weeks to Crimbo......whoopeee!!

So I'm here to share my latest Design Team Challenge card with you. Our fab theme this week is 'Animals' and I'm using a very cute digi stamp from All Dressed Up called  'Christmas Reindeer'. I decided on a CAS card we could be easily recreated for batch making especially for this time of year. I used alcohol pens to colour in the image and Colour Cloud inks for the background ...these are my new toy and I love them. Merry Christmas and thanks for looking

Don't forgot to enter our challenge you must include a stamped element on your card/project, follow our theme and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize! 
Here's What I Did
I covered a 6" x 6" card blank front with lilac patterned paper with I edged with distressing ink. Next I printed the reindeer onto colouring card and die cut it into an oval. I coloured the reindeer with Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens.

I printed the reindeer again onto copier paper and fussy cut out to create a mask, using removable tape this was placed over the image along with an paper oval to mask out a snowy base for the reindeer to stand on. The sky and the ground was inked using Colour Clouds in pink and blue shades.

I added glitter and glitter pens to the ground, baubles and snowflakes.

To complete the card I added a few punched out stars and added the topper to the card front using foam tape, and pearls were added at the top and bottom.

Fabulous Janine! Colouring animals can make beads of sweat pop out on my forehead but you did a fabulous job on this little guy. Shaded and highlighted in all the right places and I quite like lilac paper with the pretty sky.
