Rudolph has the Blues

Hand stamped Christmas Card, Gina K DesignsThe Limited Supplies challenge at SCS yesterday was to make a mostly blue holiday card, so this is what I came up with. I also played along with a fun challenge Joanne posted in the Gina K forums to use buttons, bows and have some element tilted. I didn't add a bow, but there is one on the wreath around Rudolph's head.


I stamped the deer from Funky Christmas and colored it with Koh-i-noor pencils. Then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next I sponged the background and then came back and stamped trees from Tree Silhouettes with Going Grey ink. I used my Sakura white gel pen to add snow to the trees.

I added black, red and grey layers, and pierced on the grey layer. The punched leaves are from my Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo.

Gotta run. Now that we are finally getting over our colds, we are going up the hill to find a Christmas tree. I am sure they will be pretty picked over. Might be a Charlie Brown Christmas tree we come with.

Have a great day!
