Peace

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a fabulous weekend.   It's a little cold here but the ground is dry and the sun is starting to shine this morning.

I have a card to show today with no stamping, I think, but maybe I stamped a little with a snowflake and they were watered down eventually. 



I created the background with Goosebumps, Brusho ink powders and Glimmermist.   I also used a star stencil with white Acrylic paint.   Peace (Tim Holtz) and the Reindeer (Impression Obsession) were double & triple die cut, glued together and embossed with clear glitter powder.   The Poinsettias (Crealies) were coloured with distress inks and molded on a foam mat.



Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,
Shirleyx

Beautiful! And no stamping? I especially like that you kept the stag uncolored, yet darkened his magnificent antlers!

Fabulous card Shirley, I always love the colour palettes you use. Cold and frosty here too, but bright sunshine, so feeling happy and perhaps getting a bit Christmassy! :D

Wow, a stunning card Shirley the colours are gorgeous, I love the shine that this has. Its cold and frosty here today, but the sun is shinning as well. Takes some getting used to after the warmth of Mexico. Hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.

The leaping deer looks great, especially as you have made it raised.
It's a lovely picture, I always enjoy reading about your colours and techniques.
