Collaged Greetings


I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Christmas.
So much preparations and it seems to be over so quickly.

Here is a holiday card I made by doing a collaged background.  I began by placing the Texture stamp into my Misti and randomly inked it up with some Tumbled Glass and Blueprint Sketch DOX and stamped.  That gave my background a nice mottled color.  
I took the Simple Mosaic stencil from A Colorful Life and filled in some areas on the background to add more interest.
I inked the edges with more Blueprint Sketch, stamped the greeting and set it aside.
I had a leftover piece of inked paper, (more DOX inks I think) and die-cut the reindeer from STAMPlorations from that.  He was mounted over the sentiment using some pop dots and I glued it all onto a simple, plain white card.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

The leaping deer die is just great Karen and goes beautifully over the collage type background, and love the two blues you have used. x

Love all the stamped "textures" and the lovely blue, Karen! The added sponging on the edges makes a wonderful contrast and the deer is fantastic! Awesome card, my friend!

love it, this reindeer is the best. I tried to order from Stamplorations and something went wrong with my shopping and lost it all. Will have to go back another time and try again. Its the perfect size for the card front and I love the random inking of both it and the card front. xx

Your leaping deer is gorgeous; crushing over the palette and the textured background! A wonderful gem in the CUTplorations gallery!
