Is it Wednesday already?

I’ve been so busy I can’t believe it’s a new Color Throwdown challenge already! Check out this sweet combo from Wanda!

swatch 171

Very warm, earthy, and vintagy. I thought these colors were perfect for my sweet Magenta deer. I bought this image and sentiment at a stamp show um, 3 years ago and finally inked it up. Crazy, right?!


I stamped both image and sentiment on Flourishes classic white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and based it with Copic markers. I then went over both with Prismacolor pencils…and then painted the deer with a Twinkling H20 for some sparkle.

In the picture below you can see all the glitter I added to his antlers and around…I also added it to the stars on the sentiment.


I used a Martha Stewart punch for the holly leaves and attached a small rusty bell. The background paper is from the Jillibean Soup paper pad called Christmas Eve Chowder.
