I had about 4 creative hours in my craft room today - and got two creations made. One is for the PTI blog hop so I'll show you that one on the 25th!
Here's the one I made to post today. It's a one layer card. First I stenciled the background using the WV Checkmate stencil with WV Archival Fern Green and Cornflower Blue Inks. I made the reindeer stencil using a piece of acetate with the Alterations Prancing Deer die. I laid the home made reindeer stencil over the panel and pounced over it with a sponge and Archival Black Ink.
For the sentiment, I used a WV stencil - Happy Holidays, inking it with WV Archival Red Geranium ink. The berries in the antlers are from WV Create a Wreath Stencil and the holly is inked in WV Fern Green using Tim Holtz Festive stencil
To define the edges better, I sponged them with Ranger Distress Ground Espresso Ink.
I'm linking today's card to the following challenges:
