I stamped the Memory Box Pine stamp onto patterned paper with Memento Lux Northern Pine pigment ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then used a mini blender and gold pigment ink to burnish around the stamped image.  I die cut the deer and used a darker green ink to add some dimension and a white gel pen for spots on their backs. The greeting was die cut out of the MFT Shimmer gold card stock and I used the same card stock for the card itself.  The green card stock is MFT Elf green which I seem to have used on most of my Christmas cards this year.

Make it Crafty, copic markers

I haven't done a challenge in quite a while but trying to color, paint, create an aurora borealis intrigued me.  I first colored the background with distress inks and splatted the stars.  I used a dry brush and guache paints to create the aurora.  After it was dry I used wink of stella clear to give it a real shimmer effect.  You can sort of see it below.
The cute little snowman is Make It Crafty colored in copics and popped up with foam tape.  This really was a challenge for me but I did enjoy it.
