I'm getting a head start on Christmas cards this year. It's only 3 months away! For this Christmas card and this week's challenge with the deer inspiration, I went with the colors as well as making a scene with deer. To start, I matted my die-cut using the large stitched die from MFT Blueprint 13 using the large die from Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and red card stock. The scene used Impression Obsession Evergreen Trees, Poppystamps Forest Deer, and Impression Obsession Merry Christmas, and lots of small Joy! foam pads. I used the Art Institute glue to adhere the thin lettering.
The deers were cut from watercolor paper and colored with watercolor brush pens. After it dried, I went back and added the white markings with a white gel pen. To make the snow on the trees, I used the ice white Viva Decor Pearl Pen and white detail embossing powder. While the pearl pen was still wet, I add the powder and then used heat gun to set it. The pearls bubbled up a bit - and I loved that the powder was not nice and clean - I couldn't make the scattered snow if I tried.
Thanks for looking and I hope you get a chance to play along this week!
