Time Out For Reindeer

          Today I have two cards made for the Time Out Challenge. They are both from the same stamp set, Cheerful Prancing by Unity Stamp Company. I also used my watercolors  from HWG Watercolors. This Challenge they provided a picture to inspire our creation.

If you want to visit the Time Out Challenge and get some great inspiration from the creations everyone made inspired by this picture click HERE.

I started by stamping and embossing the images, two different sentiments & two outlined and one solid reindeer. Then I watercolored them. I did an emboss resist on the first and colored in the reindeer and ground on the second.

I love these reindeer images and thought they would look great with these watercolors. I used the Blue from the Galaxy Set with the solid reindeer and the Woodlands Set for outlined reindeer. After they dried I used Waffle Flower dies to turn them into cards.

On the first I used the Nested Domes to make the card appear a little like a snow globe. I used Tim Holtz Gold cardstock for the trim and base of the card.

For the second card I used the Waffle Flower Lacey Layers die and some very old patterned paper from my stash to put everything together.

          I had lot's of fun making these and I can't believe I haven't used this gorgeous Unity Stamp set yet. It will get a lot more use now. I hope you like my creations and thanks for your visit.
