The Paper Shelter for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #135 for the 5th of July, 2020

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.
We are celebrating Christmas in July at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends!
So here is my Christmas card:

The sponsor for this challenge is:
The Paper Shelter

Prize is 3 images!

We were given the digital stamp Are You Ready My Friend? which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card. I have cut a frame around my image with my paper cutter, followed by colouring with the following Copics:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
  • red - R32, R35, R37, R39
  • black - C5, C7, C9
  • white - C00, C0, C2, clear Wink of Stella on the "fabric"
  • gold buckle and bell on reindeer - YR24, Y28
  • reindeer - E35, E39, E37
  • reindeer tail - C00, C0, C2, clear Wink of Stella
  • collar - R35, R37, R39
  • nose - R35, R37, R39, clear Wink of Stella
  • antlers - E74, E77, E79
  • grounding - C00, C0, C2
  • background - BV0000, BV000, BV00
  • outline - BV02
  • sentiment - BV02, purple Wink of Stella
I have adhered the coloured image on to a white card from Envelope Solutions
The sentiment is from Hollyberries from the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes.

Here is a close-up of the colouring :
