Its time for another sketch over at Paper Craft Planet. The first sketch for 2010 and I'm hosting this week. You may recognize this sketch that I took from my Stampendous Snowman card a few weeks ago. Anyone is welcome to play along. Be sure to tag your cards sk010210 in the Paper Craft Planet gallery so I can pull them into the correct album.
I didn't want to bore you with a card I had already shared with you, so instead I whipped up a variation to the sketch in this tag. I swapped the image and sentiment placement.
To create the faux metal deer for this tag, I used the deer in the Stampendous Birch Buddies clear stamp set. I stamped it on cardstock and cut it out. Next I inked up the back of the paper with Versamark and embossed it in Stampendous Silver EP. I added another coat of Stampendous Crystal EP over the silver to give it a bit of shimmer. I added a red nose with a dot of Stickles. The eye was simply a black dot of paper from a hole punch. I added a highlight with a white gel pen. Super simple technique to get a whole new look out of your stamps.
