Mosaic Reindeer

Hello, friends.  Today's card was inspired by the "12 Days of Christmas" challenges going on at Mark's Finest Papers.  I followed the tutorial on faux stained glass (mosaic) found here.   It's the first time I've tried this technique, and I'm very happy with the result. 

I was also inspired to create a matching envelope by A Blog Named Hero's Embell-Ope challenge.

Coordinating Envelope
To complete the faux stained glass challenge, I needed a homemade mosaic stamp, which my BF Brian kindly created for me - thank you, Brian.  Here's what it looks like:

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Reindeer, snowflakes (Hero Art Christmas Reindeer), sentiment (Plaid), homemade mosaic (Brian)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Patterned paper:  Lawn Fawn
  • Accents:  Snowflake, gems (Dollarama)
I would like to enter the following challenges:
  1. A Blog Named Hero #34 Embell-Ope UE C5
  2. Hero Arts Holiday Challenge Favourite Stamping Technique (colouring with pencils, also this mosaic technique may become a favourite) UE
  3. MFP 12 Days of Christmas Day 2 Faux Stained Glass (Mosaic) 5E #1
  4. Send a Smile 4 Kids Early Holiday Wishes 4 Kids 3E #2

Thank you for looking at my card - I enjoy reading your comments.  Have a wonderful day!
