Sketch Saturday 173: Deer Gift Mae

Hi all,

I know I've mentioned before that my favourite cards to make are Christmas cards, right?  Well, I dunno if you've seen the newest digital images over at Some Odd Girl, but Kristy released some of the cutest holiday images the last go! 

I spotted a great sketch over on the Sketch Saturday blog, #176, and I had to give it a try!  Here is the sketch:

Fabulous - I love a sketch that lets me use my patterned papers!

Here's mine:

My base is Kraft CS (I always use that, for some reason).  My patterned papers are from SU's Christmas Cocoa DSP pack, and my mats are black.  I added some polka dot Soft Suede Ribbon around the square base, and some miscellaneous red rhinestones to 2 of the corners. 
My sentiment is an SU rub-on, using Real Red CS, and punched with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.

I printed Deer Gift Mae onto Whisper White CS, coloured her with Copics, and added some shading with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I added some glitter spots all around her - I think it adds that holiday touch!  I cut her out with Curved Rectangle Nesties, and added some Wheat Versamagic spongin inside the stencil.
I have to say - my favourite part of this image is her little tail, and the spots on her little backside - she is the cutest!

Copics used:
*Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R02
*Hair: E71, E74, E77, E49
*Dress: W3, W5, W7, W9
*Present: R22, R24, R29, BG70, BG72, BG78
*Eyes: E41, E43, E48
*Antlers: E31, E33
*Shoes: C3, C5, C7

We also have a sketch challenge running on the SOG blog - don't forget to play along with us this week, if you haven't already!
