February Rudolph Days

Hi everyone.  Here's my entry for the February Rudolph Days challenge.

I used a NBUS image from Whipper Snapper called "All Tangled Up Reindeer".  Isn't it cute??!! :)  Stamped in permanent black ink and watercoloured with distress and SU! inks.  Masked off the bottom and sponged with brown to ground the image.  Added crystal glaze on the lights and Reindeer's nose and a bit of white detailing on his hooves.  Heat embossed the red sentiment at the bottom and mounted onto a square red card base.  This image makes me smile and definitely brings me joy. :)

That reminds me of the PB stamp of the spaniel-like dog all tangled up in Christmas lights - both bring a smile to my face! Your reindeer looks as frustrated as I sometimes feel when I'm untangling Christmas lights! Great colouring and use of the Crystal Glaze!
