Deer Friends and chocolate! Yum!
I really like the sketch challenge Rox posted on SCS today, and I really like the card I came up with. Yes, my arm hurts from patting myself on the back. lol But I do like it, and I don't always like what I come up with.
For this card I started by coloring the reindeer image with markers to get the brown deer and the red sentiment. Want to know what really happened from there? Well, I thought the red nose would look great covered with red glitter. I added the red glitter, but it didn't look good because the white showed through, so I scraped the glitter off and colored the nose with my red marker, added glue and the red glitter again. Now that looked way better. I punched that out with my circle punch. I wanted a snowflake behind that image, so I stamped the snowflake from Snowflake Spot with white craft ink onto real red cs and embossed it with white embossing powder. Oh yeah, I liked that too. I punched it out with the scallop circle punch. I colored the sentiment stamp with markers too, so that Christmas would stand out. I added a bit of ribbon and a chocolate chip mat, and there ya go. Oh yeah, I did run the card base through my cuttlebug using the snowflake embossing folder. I hope you like it too! Now, let's go eat some chocolate! Dove dark chocolate for me. It's medicinal, you know! wink wink wink
