(2nd project today)

I've been wanting to break in a couple stamps and since I finally had a day off from work, and, I was in the mood to make a Christmas card, I went to work.

I'm using two different stamps from So Suzy Stamps, the reindeer and the sentiment.  I love So Suzy Stamps!  She has such fun, quirky and unique stamps to choose from, and lots of other products as well.  The stencil, the Stickles glitter glue, the Flower Soft....they came from her store as well.  I love one stop shopping!

I've used a number of techniques on this card and various inks from ombre to chalk ink to distress ink.  I'm not a snob when it comes to ink.  I believe in throwing it all out there.

For the sky and clouds, I used Powder Puff chalk ink, even using a paper towel to scrunch on that lavender color.  For the snow, I dabbed my Tim Holtz Picket Fence dabber onto an acrylic block, spritzed with water, then dipped a small tipped paintbrush and tapped my splatters onto the sky.

The trees were stenciled with the Evergreen stencil from The Crafters Workshop in Hero Arts Ombre Ink, then I added Stickles glitter glue and Polar White Flower Soft for the snow.  I also inked the deer with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy distress ink, then added Ranger Mercury Glass Stickles glitter glue.  The border for my sentiment also has DoubleClick Skittles in Ginger and burlap and string from The Ribbon Resource.
