Mr. Christmoose

Mr. Christmoose started with the glitzy Debbie Mumm holiday paper. I just love this stuff! The moose was stamped on Curious Cryogen, I airbrushed the background with a bright green Copic. I used a red Copic to make the border. I colored the moose with two different browns then used my blender pen to remove the color on his feet and lighten him up in places. I strung some beads on fishing line and tied those in with my bow. I fussed with this bow... usually easy peasy, but not this one. I glued the bow tails down in a way that the beads would not fall in front of the moose, which was easier said than done. I added Spica pens to the light bulbs and holly, then coated them with Crystal Lacquer, I also used crystal lacquer over the red scallop border. It helped tie it back in with the glittery and embossed DP background. I used a gold gel pen for the light cord and I used a clear glaze pen to outline the stamped image... to help him pop from the background. In the end I think he turned out pretty cute, for a moose! Here's a close up so you can see the detail a bit better, click on pic to enlarge. The finished card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" Square.

  1. My goodness. What do you do when there's not a holiday around the corner? Speaking of which, didn't you just jump directly from Halloween to Christmas?? *lol* He is very cute. Another fantastic coloring job, too!

  2. he is so cute I love your coloring. I think I need to start collecting copics. I really like the beads too.

  3. This is so cute! The bulbs look really tiny - how did you work with te Laqcquer to get them on there?
