OMG! I'm still making Christmas Cards!!!

I just got my order yesterday, delivered by Buddy, my wonderful U.P.S. guy, and had to play! I tried a new technique from my Technique Junkies Oct. newsletter and this is what developed.

This cool reindeer is one of the sets available in TAC's Stamp Stimulus promotion and is called Reindeer Food. This set is available to purchase for $6.75 with a qualifying $30 order. The background technique is called Faux Marbling but I'm not sure what I think about it. Anyway, I also used the Thinking of You hostess set "Merry Christmas". As to inks, I used Noir, Burnt Umber, and Raw Sienna PH inks, a grey marker, and one of my favorites, Stardust Clear Gel pen. Can you see it on the antlers below?? I also used it on the hooves. I used a bunch of scrap paper, mostly white cardstock, as I have 3 large containers of scraps and am trying to get them used up.

I'm thinking I will do another Blog Candy drawing next month and give away a bunch of Christmas cards. Let me know what you think about that.
