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.
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.
