A Cheery Christmas Scene

Goodbye October, Happy November! Karen B. from The Bald Dragonfly here with a
fun, wintery scene to kick off the beginning of November. This is my first attempt at something so elaborate, and I do have to say it was quite fun to come up with a scene!

To start this long panel, I stamped three parading reindeer, one sitting reindeer and two banner holding squirrels from Lawn Fawn's Cheery Christmas Stamp Set onto some distress inked panels. (I was able to mix and match heads and horns to create different posed reindeer!)

I also stamped a tree and birds from older Lawn Fawn sets, and decorated the the tree with ornaments and lights.  These were all colored with Zig Markers. The sitting reindeer also got decorated, and the little squirrel dropped some lights to hold a banner (also from an older Lawn Fawn stamp set.) I added some personalization to the banner and then popped it up with dimensional adhesive. A few snowflakes from Lawn Fawn's Making Frosty Friends were added here and there for some interest. I sprayed the panel with some white droplets to replicate finer falling snow and then some glossy accents and a dot of Ruby Slipper Nuvo Drops for a "certain nose". To finish off the panel, I heavily sprayed it with Mr. Huey Shine Mist.
