For the first challenge, I wanted to showcase one of Jan's beautiful Christmas images. I decided on a silhouette so I could play with inks. This is 722J Reindeer:
Each of Jan's Digi Stamp's sets comes with a black and white version (what I used here), a pre-colored image, and several sentiments. This set also has each of the deer separated, so you can also use them in whatever configuration you wish. Lots of flexibility here!
I placed the Reindeer family to my liking on white card stock, then placed the sentiment (included in the Reindeer set) where it appealed to my eye. Then, it was time to ink it up. I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to achieve the look I wanted, and lightly spritzed some water on it to give the look of snow.
The snowbanks were cut out with dies from Lawn Fawn. The snowflake background was created using a Gemini Hot Foil Press machine and a foil stamp. The blue snowflakes are dies from Cheery Lynn.
That's it! My first card for the first challenge at JDS Designs Challenge Blog. It's Anything Goes! You might win a $9 gift certificate to the store!
