Include a 4 Legged animal at Craft a Scene

Hi folks, I hope you're having a lovely relaxing Sunday. There's still time to enter our challenge at Craft a Scene where the theme is 'Include a 4 legged animal', I don't have a lot of animal stamps but I recently bought these stamps from Sheena Douglass so these gorgeous reindeer are my 4 legged animals.

I began by stamping and masking the roof stamp and then stamping the background and Santa in his sleigh before masking the moon and Santa. Lots of inking with distress inks and Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot with a touch of Victorian Velvet and Wild honey above the roof lines. I removed the masks and added some colour with distress markers and then lots of snow with a White Graph'It Shake Pen.

I layered the scene up on white card and then on another layer of snowy background. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, die cut with a spellbinders die and again inked with distress ink. I've just added some glitter to the snow on the roof tops, a red bow and a little bell to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Deep Ocean: Christmas In August
Stempelsonnen: anything goes
Winter Wonderland: anything goes for Christmas

Thanks for popping by, hope to see you again soon
