Greetings to all!
Claire Jackson is with us again
today with a beautiful Christmas card
Here she is to talk us through it:
Stamp and emboss the reindeer in gold
on 3 different patterned papers and a plain cream paper
Cut a piece of card 5” square and stamp the wreath
in pine needles Distress Ink.
Dust the card with an anti static bag / talc
to make sure the ink is completely dry before stamping
and embossing the reindeer in gold over the top
Squish the evergreen bough ink onto a craft mat
and with a water brush use it to colour the leaves.
Colour the berries with cardinal red ProMarker
Cut sections from each of the different papers
and use them to piece together over the reindeer,
sticking them down with gel medium or clear glue.
Add a shadow around the reindeer with grey ProMarker.
Add glitter glue to the berries and small gems
to the saddle and eye
To mount the reindeer I found some green patterned paper
and stamped over it with a Card-Io branch in pine needles ink
to tie it in to the main image.
