Krafty Baby Rudolf!

dscdt17thjune 001


At Digi Sketch Challenge we have another new challenge and the theme this fortnight is Christmas in June.We have the super Delicious Doodles as our sponsor.

It’s the lovely Margreet’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used the adorable Baby Rudolf by Delicious Doodles and coloured him with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.And he wouldn’t be Rudolf without his shiny nose would he?So 3D Crystal Lacquer has been applied to that!Because I’ve cut him out from another card blank so that he I was able to colour him on matching kraft card I’ve used a white gel pen on his eyes,nose and the underneath of his tail.His spots have been given more pop with a white Souffle pen. I’ve simply added a couple of strips of paper to a kraft card base.They have been cut using some decorative scissors.A length of ric rac  has been added over the reindeer paper and a cute red bell has been tied to that.The sentiment has been stamped onto the card base.I’m pleased how well the pens worked on this particular kraft and as the blanks are reasonably priced I will definitely be making more of these.The added bonus is I don’t have to use too much paper (more for me to stroke!) altho’ for posting purposes I would choose a flatter embellishment.Plus how could I not with this sweet little guy?! 🙂

1 Christmas card down.Many more to go.LOL 😀
