Mistletoe Kisses by All Dressed Up Stamps for Winter Wonderland on the 4th of February, 2022

I am a little slow getting this post up tonight - it has been a busy few weeks with my youngest starting high school this week.
But at Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Michelle!

Welcome to our first challenge for 2022.

Our theme is:

All I Want for Christmas is You!

So here is my project:

I also took a photo outside tonight:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme of All I Want for Christmas is You.

Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up:

Here's a bit about All Dressed Up:

Hi, my name's Wendy, founder of All Dressed Up. I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children (my inspiration behind the characters) - in particular, my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with trends and all things digital.

Day to day, I work as a textile designer working traditionally within childrenswear, fashion and interiors. Although my work is mostly digital, my work process remains hand-drawn which I hope comes across in my artwork. 

All Dressed Up was created in 2013 as a place to share my digital stamps which back then was a whole new challenge for me. Since, I've been lucky to have discovered a whole creative community and welcomed the All Dressed Up design team who have been amazing to work with. Through our online community and Instagram, the team keep me on my toes to keep on drawing, creating and inspiring. My favourite thing is seeing how my characters are continually given brand new personalities!

On our Facebook and Instagram page we host regular tutorials, challenges (and freebies!) and is the real heart of our community. The stamps are available from the All Dressed Up Etsy shop which is continually updated on a monthly basis with lots of limited edition and seasonal stamps available in particular.

The All Dressed Up community is a friendly bunch (if I do say so myself!) and we would love for you to get involved, see your work and for you to share your stamping tips too! Do get in contact and be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what we're creating at the moment.

We had a choice of two images and I chose the image Mistletoe Kisses from the wonderful Wendy at All Dressed Up Stamps, which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then used my paper cutter to cut around the image after I have coloured it with the following Copics markers:
  • left reindeer - E55, E57, E59, R20, C5, C7, white gel pen
  • left reindeer's antlers - E35, E37
  • right reindeer - E15, E17, E19, R20, C5, C7, white gel pen
  • right reindeer's antlers - E13, E15
  • mistletoe - R85, G03, G09
  • ground - C00, C1, C3, colourless blender
  • sky - B0000, B000, B00, colourless blender
  • outline - G09
I then adhered the coloured image on to a white square card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
