Holiday reindeers

I've combined the Less is More challenge (sketch), with the Simon Says Stamp Challenge (use patterned paper showcasing Doodlebug prducts).

I only have one pack of patterned paper from Doodlebug, so it had to be a Christmas card.
I was  pondering how to implement the patterned paper, then I saw the sketch of the Less is More challenge and that sealed the deal.

I  stamped the image onto Crafter's Companion neenah paper with the Simon Says Stamp intense black ink and then colored them  with Spectrum Noir markers. 
I did this whilst enjoying some marvelous  cooking on Saturday kitchen live, Ok can't remember much of what they cooked as I was concentrating, but still nice pass time lol.

I cut out the image using the Brother scan n cut.

The patterned paper is from Polar pals by Doodlebug. I loved this pack for the use of purple/lilac on winter/Christmas themed paper. I used the snowflakes one today.
I diecut the panel with  ondulating stitched dies as  if they're snowbanks, and then measured the gap for the patterned paper.

I stamped the sentiment form the same Your Next Stamp set (reindeer holidays) with Versafine onyx black ink on the lower snowbank.

Adhered the patterned paper first to the cardbase and then the two snowbanks on top.
I mounted the reindeer with foamtape and stuck him on.
Some Nuvo shimmer pen (clear gloss) on his nose.

I think I colored one of his arms as scarf lol, don't look!.
I'm not chancing anything going wrong with red and bleaching it out...he might be hiding his had ;-)
