For today's card I started by stamping my critters from the AALL & Create stamp sets "Reindeer #611" and the "Light It Up #740" using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I created masks for each critter and applied each one.  I also add a thin mask around the edges of my focal panel to preserve a white border.  Once on, I blended some Catherine Pooler Designs "Lime Rickey" ink close to the critters and then some "Deck the Halls" ink around the edges. Before removing my masks, I splattered some Sparkle spray and white acrylic ink across the green background for a snowy look.

I removed my masks and colored up all of my reindeer and the sweet kitty.  I used Copic Markers to color in all the critters.  I also used a white gel pen to add a few more snowflakes across the panel and across my critters.

Plus we have a SALE going on!!!  Make sure to check out our SALES page so you don't pass up all the crafty savings!
