Just Add Ink #386 "R"

Hello there,
well I dragged my weary, but happy, body back from Melbourne and the SU! OnStage event and began another hectic week at home. Before I left though I managed to get started on my project for this week's new Just Add Ink challenge. This week Tina has challenged us to Just Add 'R' to our projects. That means the main element(s) of your project must begin with the letter 'R'. This can be objects, colours or techniques, the possibilities are endless. For example - reindeer, rose, red, reflection technique or rock and roll.

Despite growing up in a climate where Christmas is in summer, I still associated reindeers with Christmas, so a reindeer (and another Christmas card) it was. Here it is.

It's not often that I will CASE a card (it's the second one in her post) but I saw one by Wanda Guess recently that I really loved, the colours, the balance of colours, the reindeer! So this is my spin on her fabulous card. Being a fan of layers I added one by mounting the deer up on a glimmering oval. I also kept the sentiment restricted to the bottom of the oval rather than the whole lower card. I just found all that red a bit much if it filled the whole bottom of the card. The deer I coloured with my Blendabilities, pulled out of moth balls for another go at colouring.

The Just Add Ink DT have a gorgeous array of 'R' themed projects to inspire you so please go check them out and then share yours with us!
