Yes, friends - another Christmas card! This time 3 versions using the same stamp. I was so surprised and pleased to be picked the challenge winner over at Merry Monday last week - I just had to join in on this week's challenge, use a reindeer.
I bought this beautiful Penny Black stamp, Sentinel, on sale at Michaels several months ago and knew he'd be perfect for this challenge.
I stamped him in Archival Jet Black, heat set the ink, then watercolored over the trees, sky, moon and the reindeer. I splattered white acrylic paint over the panel using an old tooth brush then dotted white on the bigger dots (most of which are part of the stamp) using the round end of a paintbrush.
I brushed over pretty much everything with my clear Wink of Stella which is so hard to see in a photo but makes it quite shimmery IRL! You may see some of the shimmer on the trees and moon below.
And since I've decided when I make a card for my Christmas stash - I'm going to try and make multiples while I have the supplies out, so I made two CAS cards using this beautiful stamp.
For my second card - I just embossed the stamp in silver and added clear rhinestones.
and for my third card I just embossed the stamp in gold and added gold half pearls.
I'm linking my first watercolored card to these challenges:
A new challenge I just discovered - The Heart Desires Challenge
I was inspired by the blues - and the snowy backgrounds!
