Retro Reindeer


Retro if the 90's are retro to you, that is! This is one of the first stamps I purchased around in the early 90's and used as a Christmas card. I decided to go through my old Christmas stamps and remake some old cards! I wish I still had a one of the old ones I made. I remember trying to color the image with markers; back then they did not really make printed background paper either so the card was pretty boring! This time I went with Koh-i-nor colored pencils, mineral spirits for blending, stickles, glitter pen and a charm! The glitter does not really show up very well, unfortunately.

I am not sure what company made the reindeer; all it says is Imagination on the side. Here is the inside of the card; this stamps is dated 1992, and says Annette Watkins on the side.

Almost Friday!! Yay!!
