Reindeer in Snow for Pattie's Creations for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge#147 for the 6th of December, 2020

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.
Here is my card:

The sponsor for this challenge is:
Pattie's Creations 
Prize ~ 2 Images

Prize is 2 images!

I chose the digital stamp Reindeer in Snow 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:
  • reindeer - E31, E33, E35, E37, 100, clear Wink of Stella
  • antlers - E71, E74, E77
  • trees - G12, G14, G17, G28
  • sky - V000, V01, V04, B14, B63, B66, B69, white gel pen
  • snow - BV0000, BV000, BV00, C0, C1, colourless blender, clear Wink of Stella
  • outline - B69
I have adhered the coloured image on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions, then stamped the sentiment from Let Your Heart Be Light by the wonderful Marcella from Power Poppy in Elderberry Memento ink.

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 :
