Reindeer

I made this card for the Allsorts 'Paper Piecing' challenge.  I'm also entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'C is for Creatures',  Merry Monday 'Clean and Simple' challenge, Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white linen
Stamp: Woodware 'Noel Reindeer'
Punch: Woodware squared corner
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Colouring: Faber-Castell colour pencils
Card: White linen
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Woodland Wishes' (pink), Making Cards 'Cocktail Time' (gold) and 'Christmas Special 2016' (brown) (magazine freebies)
Other: Wink of Stella

I stamped the reindeer, sentiment and star onto white card, this was trimmed and the corners punched. I layered it onto pink paper and attached to the card front.  I stamped the reindeer onto brown paper, the collar onto pink paper and the bell onto gold paper before paper piecing them onto the reindeer.  I coloured the sentiment with a pink pencil and added a Wink of Stella to the collar, bell, stars and swirls.
