November Rudolph Days

Hi everyone.  Today's card is for the last challenge of the year at Rudolph Days.  I've had lots of fun playing along this year and it's helped build my Christmas cards throughout the year.  Thanks to Maureen (Scraps of Life for Scrappymo!) for all her hard work running this challenge.

If you want to play along, the challenge is open from Nov. 25 - 30 and it's an "Anything Goes Christmas" challenge.

I bought this die a few months ago and have gotten a lot of use from it this year for my Christmas cards.  Makes for an easy card by just adding a white die-cut over a colourful background.  For today's rainbow background I sponged DOX inks onto white Neenah card stock.  The inks blend so beautifully.  I splattered with diluted white acrylic paint for the falling snow.  The panel was then cut down to size to match the die-cut.  A silver stamped sentiment finishes the card.

Thanks for coming by for a visit!






Stamps:  Festive Snippets (Penny Black)
Paper:  White (Neenah 110 lb. card stock)
Ink:  Distress Oxides:  Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers; Silver Delicata (Tsukineko)
Accessories & Tools:  Sponges, Deer & Trees die (AliExpress), white acrylic paint, paint brush for splattering

It's a gorgeous die, and one I'd not have thought to try with the rainbow background effect. Which is dazzling behind the crisp white of this winter scene. So glad Rudy Day has helped build your stash. I've missed seeing all the wonderful creations at Maureen's Rudolph Days. TFS & Hugs

That is such a pretty die Loll and I'm extremely fond of nontraditional colors on Christmas cards. Beautiful blending in your gorgeous background colors. Those colors remind me of the pretty winter days that are not so bad- brighter skies and maybe even a little sun.
