Sweet Rudolph

Hi Friends and Happy Friday!  Today begins a new bi-weekly challenge round at The Colour Crazy Challenge Blog and our sponsor this round is the fun and quirky Mirtillamente.  For my project, I've colored up the Sweet Rudolph digital stamp, which was so generously provided by our sponsor.

My card measures 4.25" x 5.5" , as you can see, I've printed Rudolph quite large.  I wanted to keep the card design fairly simple and allow the image to take center stage.  This guy makes me laugh, especially with all those piercings...this is NOT the Rudolph I remember as a child...and how did he get Santa to agree to that?  Maybe it's Casual Friday!  LOL

I've colored the image using Spectrum Noir Illustrator Alcohol Markers.  After trimming the focal panel, I backed with a panel of red card and adhered to a card base of 110 lb. Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.

To complete my card, I've added red gems, touched the whipped cream, cake frosting and Rudolph's nose with Wink of Stella.  No matter how I position a card, I can never get the glittery Wink of Stella to show.  Lastly, I doodled a snowflake on the cocoa cup and added highlights using a white gel pen.  

I hope you'll stop by the challenge, we would love to see what you create.  Are you still working on Christmas cards?  Me?  why yes I year I will start in July (however I say this every December *wink)

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
