I used the blue/grey background as an inspiration (I used SC inks as watercolors)...and since it's almost Christmas...I saw the deer and thought of reindeer! #WCMD14 #WCMD2014

I like your card very much! Did you use a stamp for the deers and the skyline? And the text is it also a stamp? Which stamp did you use? I would like to make this card myself. I hope you can help me! Thanks a lot!
The background itself is watercoloring with Studio Calico inks. I pushed my ink pads (starting at the top - Deja Blue, Something Blue, Mint Hint, and Slate Gray) onto a long acrylic block and then sprayed it with water. I then turned it over and "stamped it onto" a piece of watercolor paper. You could do this with Distress inks or even regular watercolors probably.
Then I used the "falling snow" stencil from Simon Says Stamp and some white pigment ink to create the snow background.
All of my stamps (moon, reindeer, houses, and sentiment) come from the Mama Elephant "Believe in the Magic" stamp set.
After that....I just used my Clean Slate ink again to distress the edges and mounted my piece onto a card!
I hope this helps you!
Thank you thank you thank you! I can't wait to get on with making this card. You helped me a lot! Thank and keep up the good work!
