Frosty Christmas

Hello everyone!
It's Saturday and time for a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown! This week we're colorful:

Brown Silver Turquoise

I love these frosty colors for this kind of cards and couldn't resist make two!

The design paper for this card is homemade. I sprayed silver and turquoise alcohol inks onto a Teflon sheet and quickly mixed the colours with the edge of an old credit card and then pressed the white panel onto it. I had to do this twice because alcohol inks dry super fast. Then I stamped the deer and the trees with early espresso (all Stampin'Up), but it looks like I stamped them before I colored the background - a lucky coincidence I really liked! I backed the panel with wood grain embossed paper. I covered the diecut sentiment (Scrap Plaisir) with Wink of Stella before gluing it on.

For the second card I used a background stamp that my friend Gundi gave me for my birthday. ♥
I used felt pens and water for coloring. I covered a few images with glue and sprinkled them with ultrafine glitter, for others I only colored with glitter gel pens or traced the lines - on the poinsettia and on the twig there are even some perl pen accents.... I added a silver string to the panel before gluing it to the brown base card.
