Hello again, my friends!  This is my third post for today, and I'm so glad you've stopped by!  It's a new month, which means it's time for another theme challenge at Christmas Crafts All Year RoundThis month, we want to see you make a Christmas project with Autumn/Fall colors.  Yes, Fall colors!  This one had me stumped almost until the deadline, but I managed to get something created that didn't read too Christmassy:

This is the Rudolph image that comes in the A Kids View Reindeer Names set from Bugaboo Stamps.  I do believe this is the set that was given away for the winner of last year's Christmas in July event.  There is a pre-colored version and a un-colored version in the set to choose from , and I went with the un-colored one.  I thought it wouldn't take all that long to color this simple image up.  I used my favorite brown Prismacolor marker combo, Sepia, Mocha Dark, and Mocha Light, to color this fella.  I think these 3 browns together are just perfect!  For his antlers, I used a Spectrum Noir EB7 marker.  His nose and the heart beside his name were colored with Prismacolor marker Crimson, and the bells on his collar were colored with a YR23 Copic marker.  I like to color any areas I am adding Stickles to, just to make sure there is no white showing through the glitter glue.  The Stickles I used were Christmas Red and Gold.  I added white gel pen to his eyes, and the coloring was done!  I die cut the image with Spellbinders Labels One in the largest size, and made my card base from 2 pieces of kraft card stock using the largest Scalloped Labels One die.
