Here's my card featuring Merry Christmoose. Once again I stamped the image in memento desert sand ink and used coloured pencils. The vast majority of the image is coloured with my Faber Castell Polychromos. In the final layers, I used a couple of prisma premier on the skin (I only have a small handful of those) as well as a couple of Derwent Drawing pencils on the moose. Love how different brands of pencils can be used together.  I still have much to learn with coloured pencils, but I had a lot of fun experimenting with creating a furry texture for the moose. That being said, I think I got a little carried away and made him super fluffy, lol. Let's just say his winter coat has come in. ;) There are a ton of layers in that fur! I decided to only stamp a portion of the image to fit on a smaller card base. The sentiment comes with the set. 



Here's a look at the full set:
