What a Cutie

This little cutie is from Createful Heart our sponsor at Outlawz Sketch this month.  It's called Deer Cheer Reindeer Gift.


I've coloured the image with Copics.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks


I've used some scrapbook papers for the background.


There's a section of white ric rac, but over the top of this I decided to add some icicles cut with a die.  I've added some DecoArt glitter to this and to the wooden Christmas sentiment.  I've also used a couple of white heart buttons.

Thanks for popping by for a look today, we hope to see you at the challenge

Ok so maybe I could get hooked

Yes it was a little challenging and REALLY outside my comfort zone but I just love how this came out.  Maybe, just maybe I could have a go at making a few more digital cards :)

We've sponsored by WeAre3 at Outlawz Sketch this month.  I'm using a Deer from their Silhouette Scenes and one of their Merry Christmas Sentiments


Before I go on to show you my card this is our sketch for the next two weeks



So I've taken some photos of papers from First Edition, then pasted them into my software app and layered them up.  Huge learning curve but so love the result!
