As I alluded yesterday... today I have a special giveaway for one randomly chosen entrant. A few weeks ago I was asked if I would like to take part in a special promo for Homecrafts. The remit was they send me one set of these fab reindeers for me to play with and one set to giveaway on my blog! Well, how could I refuse? The reindeers are made from papiermache and are really sturdy. They are available in two sizes, 25 x 22.5cm and 20 x 17cm. To be in with a chance of winning the set of reindeer, all you need to do is leave a comment for me here and click to follow my blog if you don't already. As I mentioned, this is a one day only giveaway as I want to get the winner chosen and announced tomorrow so I can pop them into the post tomorrow or Saturday. How simples is that! The closing time for the last comment will be 23:59 today... any comments left after that time won't be eligable for the draw. I will use Random.org to pick the winner for us. It is worth popping over to Homecrafts as they have a wealth of crafty supplies on their website. HERE is the linky to the reindeer page if you want to buy some anyway :O))
My reindeer was coloured with Gathered Twigs and Walnut Stain DI... and then I smidged a bit of Black Soot around the edges using Cut & Dry so I could get into all the nooks and crannies. I then spritzed him with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mists and once dried, I dabbed some SnowCap Dabber along his back and antlers and then sprinkled Rock Candy Dry Stickles over so he has a snowy look to him.
|Here they are, in their un-altered state :O))|
I added some Ferro texture thru a Crafters Workshop stencil for a bit of detailing and cut out three mini Cardinals using Grungeboard and coloured them with DI's and stuck them together so it was thick enough to sit on his back. The garland around his neck are some little berries that I got yonks ago, can't remember where from tho! This altering took me about 30 mins... seriously quick or what!? The larger one is going to be altered much more slowly, when I have a little more time to play... I have plans for him!
Right, I shall away... apologies for the slightly later than anticipated time of blogging, we are experiencing bad probs with our internet again... tis the trouble with living somewhere that doesn't have cable... and I am sure someone around here is doing a whole lot of downloading every night lol Don't forget, to be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment and click to follow if you don't already. That's all for today... thanks for looking and have a good one! TTFN
