I picked up this sweet little reindeer the other day and decided to use it for this month’s Make It Crafty challenge: “bright colours”. I normally stick to naturalistic colours, so choosing these bright oranges for the reindeer was definitely outside of my comfort zone.
I started by cutting a piece of Stick It for the hill and carefully positioning it on the card base. This doubled as a mask for adding the Distress ink blending over the background.
Once the Distress ink was dry, I peeled the protective sheet off the Stick It and covered it with white microfine glitter. The background was completed by stamping the sentiment in gold.
I coloured the reindeer with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. The antlers, nose, hooves and bell were coated in Wink of Stella and then covered with glossy accents. I also added some glossy accents to the eye. The final step was to mount the reindeer on the card base with foam tape.
