R is for Reindeer

I was able to play for a little while this morning and I made this:


I used both sides of the same piece of Doodlebug Design paper from Home for the Holidays Collection! I used Ladybug Swiss Dot Washi Tape also from Doodlebug!! I die cut a circle of watercolor paper and stamped the reindeer from the Santa’s Gifts Stampin’ Up! set on it using a Versafine Black inkpad and then embossed it with clear embossing powder!!

I colored the reindeer ink by smooshing my ink pads so that ink got on the lid and then I picked up the ink with a wet paintbrush!! Becoming my favorite way to watercolor!!

Linking up to the following challenges:
