Up on the Rooftop

Hi there.  So I am having internet connection issues, so this will be a quick post.  My Christmas card today was inspired by “Up on the Housetop” Christmas song.


Up on the Rooftop Reindeer CRd


The scene I wanted to create was having the reindeer playing on the snowy rooftop.  I heat embossed the reindeer in black and watercolored them and the sky with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on hot press watercolor paper.  I die cut the reindeer with the matching dies.  The brick detail was created by ink blending through a stencil.  I used Sahara Sand ink for the wall and Rusty Hinge, Barn Door and Black Soot distress inks for the chimney.

The icicles were die cut from white cardstock.  I added glossy accents and sprinkled Dazzling Diamond glitter on top to give it a glistening effect.  The shadows beneath the reindeer were done with Copics.

I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and used a white gel pen to add snow and complete my snowy rooftop scene.  The whole panel was mounted on a top folding white card base.
