Santa's Reindeer Wreath

Happy Friday everyone! This week has been a week of experimentation as far as colouring is concerned. I’ve been trying to incorporate mediums into my cards that I haven’t used in awhile.

Today’s card features a few different stamp sets from Power Poppy. You all know how I love my little stamp images and like to use them in unique ways… well, today is no different! I used the little evergreen bough from the “Merry Littles” stamp set to create my own wreath plus a few other added accessories from the same stamp collection.

I created it using two different pigment inks… yup, pigment inks, from Catherine Pooler Designs to colour in not only my wreath but my Santa and deer image from the “Under Glass: Christmas Traditions” stamp set too.

I just love how they turned out!

To make my wreath all I did was:
  1. Using just the single pine bough from the “Merry Littles” stamp set, I stamped in a circle using the Green Tea and Eucalyptus inks.
  2. Then I applied some water to soften the layer.
  3. I went back again and added Green Tea and Eucalyptus ink with only the very tip of the bough stamp.
  4. I added some fun Rhubarb Crumble Nuvo Drops as berries.

Ally this is so smart and so CUTE! How you coloured with the pigment ink really gives it a different look and the wreath is awesome to frame it all up!
