To compensate for the lack of crafting time in the week, I'm making up for lost time in the weekend. So today I'm publishing not one but two posts (I would have published the other tomorrow, but they are both for challenges ending today). The Culinary Consultant enjoyed a boy's night out last night and has had a very uncharacteristic sleep-in to recuperate, so I have had a long quiet morning in the craft room. I started watching Mr Selfridge on Netflix, it's the perfect companion to crafting. Not too complex to follow when half-watching and half-listening, a bit of idle silliness.
My first card of the day is inspired by the Pink, Green and White challenge over at Merry Monday. I decided to combine this colour scheme with the Reindeer challenge over at One Layer Christmas Cards. I'm also linking up my glittery reindeer over at ABC Christmas Challenges where the theme is W is for Wild Thing and over at Just Us Girls where the theme is watercolour (this is my 2nd entry for this challenge). Last but not least I'm also linking up over at the STAMPlorations Anything Goes challenge.
I started by dabbing Versamark ink through the Christmas Reindeer stencil and heat embossed with holographic embossing powder. I then watercoloured the background in Mowed Lawn and Picked Raspeberry Distress inks. After drying the watercolour with a heat gun I heat embossed the sentiment and the snowflakes in white ink.
