Handmade Christmas Series 2016: Card 8 Watercolor Skating Rudy

Merry Christmas and welcome!  Todays project is the eighth in my series for 2016 and starts off with this adorable Rudolph the Skating Reindeer by Stamping Bella.  I die cut my watercolor paper with a stitched circle die and stamped the image in Archival ink because it's a waterproof ink and I used watercolors to paint in the image.  To get a straight edge for the ice he's skating on, I laid down painters tape so that one hoof is just touching the ice.  The background is a large sheet (9x12 inches) that I colored using spray inks and cut down to card size.  I ran the panel through my big shot with a stitched rectangle die to give it a finished edge.  After heat embossing the sentiment, I added a few enamel dots to complete the card.  Here's the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel if you'd like to see how I made it from start to finish and my supply list is below.
