Reindeer Card (LMMS Inspiration)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this one layer, Reindeer Card. :o)

To make this card I was inspired with GORGEOUS card created by Sue Hastead of  tanglemouse cards. Lovely scene, gorgeous colors and fantastic coloring. Love it!! :o) You can find Sue's card here. :o)

For my card I used an adorable LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Reindeer Greetings' digital stamp. There are more reindeer images from this collection in LMMS shop and you can find them all here. So cute! :o)

I made a layout on my computer and printed it out directly on a card base, for which I used Canson XL Mixed Media 300 g Paper. watercolored the image with Distress Inks. I colored it five days, each day a bit. No particular reason, I felt that way. :o) First day I colored a background, splattered it with water and Distress Ink. In next days I colored the rest of the image.

Here is a day by day preview...

Lasty, I highlighted white dots in reindeer's eyes, and my card was finished.  :o)
