Rudolph Day

Hi everyone, today is the first Rudolph Day of 2023… 25th of every month where we are encouraged to get ahead with a Christmas card so that we don’t get into a last minute panic come December!

Back in October I had a colouring session one day with the adorable LotV James the Bear image holding a Christmas tree .. he is one of my favourites and I coloured 4 images while I had my pens on the table. This is the last card made with those images 🎄🎄

I stamped and coloured James with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then added white gel pen highlights, and holographic glitter to the ground and his hat using a Quickie Glue pen. I cut the stamped card into a square and added a stamped sentiment, then matted simply onto red card stock and designer paper with a few pearls to finish. 

Stamps: LotV James Christmas Tree; Uniko Christmas Wishes;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; Memento ink (black); Versafine Clair (Nocturne); holographic glitter; white gel pen;
Papers: LotV;
Other: pearls from my stash.
