Merry ChrisMoose

Yes...I am STILL working on getting my Christmas card stash going! And I love, love, LOVE this new image from Stampendous! It's called Merry ChrisMoose ! Isn't it adorable?

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and I used a blender pen for shading.

Just for fun, the pine trees in the background were freehanded with Tombow markers in shades of green and brown. I used a White Opaque Pen from Ranger to highlight the trees, as well as my Stardust Gelly Roll Pen . The ornaments and "Merry ChrisMoose" were highlighted with the Stardust Gelly Roll pen as well.

The embellishment is a Heidi Swapp Snowflake . I added Stickles Glitter Glue to it in order to give it a little sparkle. The rhinestone in the center is a Kaiser Craft Red Rhinestone . I LOVE those new rhinestones and pearls! You can find them in the store HERE .

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Fruitcake collection.

Thanks to each of you for stopping by tonight!
