Playing Rudolph * Mix It Up Challenge

Hello and welcome to my second Mix It Up Challenge inspiration for this month.

Todays card was inspired by the color combo and you can kind of see the sketch shining through a little as well. The adorable bear wanted to play Rudolph 😊


First, I stamped the bear with watercolor friendly ink and colored him with watercolor markers. Next, I die cut the reindeer antlers and colored them with the same watercolor markers. I cut out my bear image and set it aside.

I started to drew pine trees to the watercolor paper with my Faber Castell watercolor markers. I painted them very loosely, just making sure I got the typical shape (smaller at the top, wider at the bottom). Then, I went over the trees with a small water brush just to loosen up the background a bit. The trees don't have to be perfect, I went for some kind of artsy look. I also used a bit of grey watercolor marker on the bottom of the trees to create some shadow.

For my background, I did some ink blending with two shades of blue and black Distress Oxide inks. I didn't do any masking. Only the lightest blue is slightly touching the trees wich gives the forest some kind of glow. I only added black ink on the top of my card to create some depth and interest.

To finish up my card, I sprinkled some liquid glitter and water on my background panel, added the bear with foam tape and stamped a little black greeting.


I hope you got inspired and join the fun! You can play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs store. You'll find all the informations and the rules on how to play along on the SugarPea Designs Blog!

Have a cozy day,
