Runaway Reindeer

Hello.  Welcome.  Gosh, January is galloping on apace and my wish to join in with more challenges is kinda working.  Loved Kimberly's card at Muse Christmas Visions and knew I had the perfect stamp.  Unfortunately, Rudolf had legged it and, despite searching all the likely places, he seemed to have vanished.  I know I used him at Christmas!  Then last night, after I had given up hope of finding him, the gremlins returned him!!  I moved one piece of card, that I am sure I put there a few hours before, and there he was.  So, here he is.  

I stamped the Panduro deer on a piece of white card, fussy cut his foot and used a stitch die to cut the panel.  Then I masked him and stamped the sentiment from the same set.  I coloured with distress inks and my waterbrush, which has Windsor and Newton iridescent watercolour medium in it, so everythng it touches gets a little glimmer of sparkle.  I used a gold pilot marker for the star and bell.  

Gosh, two xmas cards already this year.  Off to a wonderful start.  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
