Reflections Without Ink!

OK, well that is  to "Stamp Without Ink" at Simon Says Stamp and Show or at least not traditional ink pads.  As luck would have it, Simon Says Stamp, is also the sponsor of this weeks #28 CC2C at Linda's lovely Studio L-3, so I will be linking this up to both!  Linda has chosen, page 65 of Tim's book, "Reflections Stamping."  You know I can't give details, but I will tell you that I used Distress Metallic Stains, "Brushed Pewter" for this technique!  Here it is and I hope you can see the sheen from the Metallic stain!
The snowflakes in the background were stamped using the metallic Brushed Pewter stain.  The reindeer (after following the instructions on page 65, minus the use of an ink pad), was stamped directly on my background!  The background was inked with Distress Festive Berries, Vintage Photo and edged with Walnut Stain and then the magic of Water Spritz took place.  I used the Barn Door marker for the calendar and sentiments stamps, which were cut out and Walnut Stain marker for the crackle stamp.  All stamps are Tim's .
Many thanks to Linda, Simon Says Stamp, Mr. Holtz and especially all of you for stopping by to visit!   Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Love your festive tag! Those snowflakes are OUTstanding -- and you know how I love snowflakes!

So, has our friend Tim released a reindeer with antlers stamp or is this a clever pairing of stamps?

Of course you shouldn't give me details if I'm overlooking some obvious "go read your book!" explanation! :)
