New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!

I'm here with my DT card for the current Inkspirational challenge where my wonderful DT friend Sandie has chosen us a theme:

One of my faves! I often go very CAS with one layers but this time I wanted to fill almost my whole card base with a stenciled design. The fun, funky deer with almost tribal looking details is from a stamp set I got last Christmas from Gerrina. It's my first time using this stamp and I think I'll make many more Christmas cards with it this year -I love how this turned out! I only colored his horns this time (I used Copics) but I so want to do the whole image with some cool non-traditional Christmas colors... I love all the detail in this stamp. Thank you so much, Gerrina! The stencil I used is from STAMPlorations and the sentiment is super old by SSS. 

I hope to see you playing along! Don't miss any other DT inspiration and challenge details, click HERE.

This is lovely! That background is really bold... how did you add color around that stencil? Spraying it on or dabbing it? Really expert look. And of course the reindeer is so fun for a nontraditional Christmas card!

This a great mix of a traditional motif with contemporary patterned background, and I love how this original Christmas design turned out!

I also have this fun set and love this image, have made a very CAS card for TO using it and it is perfect for repeats. I really like how you used the stencil with this and would never have thought of it myself. Fabulous card and sorry for late comment x

Such an elegant card, Nonni! The stenciled background is the perfect canvas for this stately deer! LOVE!
