Is it a bird, is it a plane....?

Well no, actually it isn't, and it isn't Superman either!  Morning all, welcome to Wednesday and my DT day with The Stamp Basket.

In case you hadn't spotted them yet, the delicious Wild Rose Studio Christmas stamps (and soon the new dies and papers - on preorder now) are in stock so I have been having a happy play with one of them.

Ingredients for this card which are available from The Stamp Basket store are:
Ink & Medium: Memento Tuxedo Black and

From my stash: sentiment

For the background on this one, I stamped the Reindeer, made a mask (we lost a hoof and half an antler during the cutting out!) and then with DI pads of Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot I got inky with a big stiff bristled brush.  The little stars I did with a punch and the masking paper.  Which was fine until I inked over them and then couldn't find them to peel them off!

Hugs to all, Squirrel xx

First glance at the picture and I thought that's different for Squirrel! The background technique is very effective, especially with the little masked stars - thanks for sharing how you did it :)

Well not only is the image coloured to perfection, but I'm in awe of that background. It made me smile to read about the hidden stars and the lost hoof and antler, but it was well worth it. It's just perfect.
