ABC Christmas Challenge - U & V are for?

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Julie is the host, and the themes are:

'U is for Up in the Air'
'V is for Vixen'
(Other reindeer are ok too!)

There's a little prize from Julie for the lucky winner:

For my 'Up in the Air' card, I used cute little Owl and robin stamps from the 'Wintertime Cheer' set by Penny Black, stamped on to watercolour paper, and coloured using watercolour pencils. I cut an aperture (using one of my circle Nesties) in a snippet of white card, then mounted the watercolour image behind it. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.

I used more Penny Black stamps on my 'V is for Vixen' card...'Deer in Skates' and a little robin from the 'Christmas Hugs' set. Again, stamped on to watercolour paper, and coloured using watercolour pencils...with some sparkle added to the icy ground using a Wink of Stella pen. I doodled a simple border using a black gel pen, and added a Lili of the Valley sentiment.

Challenges for these cards:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
