Another card for CHNC challenge 137: picture inspiration


This is another card for my CHNC challenge 137, with this picture inspiration:


I made the background paper by inking one  of the 6 x 6 Papermania urban stamps 'home for Christmas - homespun'. As this is a large stamp I inked it with fired brick distress ink and placed the piece of card on top of the stamp, pressing down well. I then inked part of the stamp with bundled sage distress ink and die cut a circle using the cuttlebug, using this to create a spotlight, making use of the colours in the inspiration picture. The felt reindeer seemed an appropriate addition as there are deer in the picture.
