Merry Monday 231 and NBUS at Darnell s

Hi There!

I love it when I can combine a couple of challenges.  Darnell is having a NBUS challenge, this week and next week and the week after.   This week the NBUS Challenge is to color on Kraft. Check it out at her blog.

Merry Monday is having a prompt that I couldn't resist as I am still crushing on a particular holiday stamp set with the most adorable lil reindeer.

I like the more masculine tone Kraft can give a project...since those man cards are often times difficult for me.

My NBUS is a set of 72 prisma color pencils...not one of those points has seen paper so it was another perfect opportunity to play with some challenges and break them in.


I softly colored the reindeer in shades of brown, grey, and a touch of red.  I added wink of stella to the nose and the stars in the swirls and a tiny drop of black pico embellisher to the eyes to make them pop a bit.  The layer was cut out with a Lawn Fawn die and mounted on a black cad base. All of the stamps came from Simon Says Stamp.

 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
