Ugh ....

Following on from yesterday's post, is another swap in which I'm participating.
The theme is "Circles" on ATCs.

For those folk who are wondering what an ATC is, 
it stands for Artist Trading Card
and is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

I started with the background paper as it already had circles, 
and added the larger black circles using a bottle lid and black gesso.

"Reindeer"  was stamped onto various paper/card but I wasn't happy - something just wasn't right.  Then I stamped him onto a piece of leftover card where I had been experimenting with Ken Oliver 'Color Burst' powder paint and liked his mottled body colour.

I added a piece of torn washi tape across the bottom, with a smidge in the top corner, before fussy cutting "Reindeer" and glued him into place.

I coloured his antlers with silver pen and his bell with gold,
and of course, no reindeer would be complete without a red glittery nose.

I stamped the word "Ugh ....." (just because I could [hehehe]).

I wonder what he's thinking?

Happy Crafting!
