Reindeer Card

Here is my second submission for The 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style challenge. This is actually my submission for week 4's tag. I still need to do weeks 2 and 3. The challenge runs through December 15th and participants have until then to post all 12 of their projects. That's my kind of challenge because some weeks I crank out all kinds of stuff and others not so much.

Anyway, the object of the challenge is to make a project inspired by tags created by Linda - aka The Funkie Junkie. (I just love that name!) The projects can be anything you like - cards, tags, altered art, etc. So far both my submissions have been cards, but I plan to make a few other things as well.

  • Colors
  • Reindeer
  • Snowflakes
  • Sheet Music
The reindeer and snowflake stamps are from a clear set. I took all my clear stamps out of their packaging so I could store them in binders on acrylic sheets in page protectors. Unfortunately, I didn't note the companies. I'm fairly certain these are Inkadinkado, but they could be Hampton Art. I do know that the Merry Christmas is from Martha Stewart. The sheet music is from an old piano lesson book that I found at our local swap meet (referred to here as "the sale barn") for a dollar. I sponged everything with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I stamped the snowflakes on the background with Vintage Photo and the ones on the image panel with Black Soot. I also edged the image with Black Soot. I sprayed the background and the reindeer image with my homemade glimmer spray.

Thanks for looking!

Will you look at that card! Wow, ,Judy, this is sensational. That sheet music is the perfect background and I just love your gold embossed deer. The sponging and glimmer mist set up such a wonderful vintage feel.

I'm so pleased you are participating in this challenge. Thank you so much for coming to play with me!

I agree with Janice...nice to have you creating and posting again! This card is so beautiful. I love your use of the sheet music but I think my favorite part is the stick it!
