25 Days of Christmas (Day 6)

Hi Everyone!

Back again with another Christmas card for you. I hope you have been enjoying what I've been sharing. I have had lots of fun over the past few days going around and looking at lots of other creations in Blogosphere. Such inspiration and talent out there.
Today's card was inspired by Jen McGuire's "Thinking Inking" holiday class over at Two Peas. During the first week, she focused on using distress inks. One card she did used background stamps with the inks as a "waterink stamping" technique. I used Ripe Avocado, Ruby Red and Blush Blossom for my colors. I stamped the deer from Inkadinkado in Old Olive ink and then painted all over it with crystal effects and then added some diamond stickles to the antlers and and some gold glitter to the rest of him. It's a bit hard to see in the picture, so you'll just have to take my word for it!
Anyhow, I hope you like it and I will see you all tomorrow!
