TMTA is a challenge I don’t often enter, but this week, we’re to make an ATC with one of the lesser characters of Christmas, like elves, reindeer, etc. I think that’s rather charming… and as I had a few minutes spare (waiting for DD to get ready so I can drop her into town!), I got out my Doodly Christmas stamps from Home Impressions and had a bit of a Reindeer-holly-Ho Ho Ho play around.
The background is newspaper on cardstock, smooshed with primary colour acrylics and then gesso applied randomly through punchinella and spatter for fun! I managed to find a part that looked “snowy” and here’s the result:
I think my old Kodak has almost given up the ghost now… I only managed to get one pic and that’s not really brilliant, but you get the idea? The holly berries are Anita’s 3D red paint, which I love using, but it does take a good 12-24 hours to dry!
No snow here yet, just the odd sleety shower, but I am glad as I have 2 days of very early starts at market this week and a fair few miles to travel in my little red sleigh car… I have my snowman earmuffs all ready and Tess’s Santa hat with plaits and a bell for her to wear – we shall have fun I think!! 😉
