Season's Greetings

Today's card started with the Jingle Belles challenge to use up old stash. The papers and ribbon are from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly By Golly line which I adore. I actually won the papers and ribbon which was great since I wasn't able to easily order online when they were available and couldn't find them in stores but because I love this collection I have hoarded it. Well today I give up a small bit of it. I also am using this reindeer stamp that is quite old. I used the Copic no-line coloring technique. The way I do the no-line coloring is by stamping in a light ink such as Momento Angel Pink and then coloring over the lines as I go. I really love the way it looks but it's more time consuming and a bit of a strain on the eyes. Maybe as I get better I will share a how-to video on my You Tube channel but for now several of my videos featuring Copic coloring of critters.
