This week's challenge at MelJens is to use red, green and gold. When I saw the new release this week: I was awestruck. So many amazing images. Each reindeer has it's own unique personality. I have never seen a more fun rendition of Santa and his reindeer. . I knew I had to make something special. I decided to make a wall hanging that I could enjoy year after year at Christmas time. I purchased a shadowbox frame at Michaels. I covered the backing with cardstock and cut out house die cuts with my Cricut machine. I also used flocking on the houses to represent snow. I added a moon, using my spellbinders, and rhinestone stars. I used most of the new release images this week and colored them with my Copic Markers. I used cardstock from American Crafts. To add further dimention, I cut out "Season's Greetings" in vinyl using my Cricut machine. I added several different sizes of dimentionals to make this image 3D and to allow the back and front reindeer to be seen and to be represented realistically. On my images I added Stickles, Clear Snap Smooch and lots of rhinestones.
I followed the ABC Christmas Challenge of "Yuletide". I also participated in the Beli challege of using Christmas paper or embellishments. I also used the Digital Tuesday challenge of "Baby it is Cold Outside". I also followed the ABC challenge of using jewels or gems on my card.
Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations by the DT using these images! You can purchase these fabulous images and others from MelJen's Designs at the Whimsy Site.
