Deer One

     This beautiful little buck as well as the birch tree and the mountains in the background are stamps included in the "Little Things" stamp set from Firecrackers Designs by Pamela. Since I am such a nature buff this stamp set is right down my alley. Give me animals, birds, trees and flowers to play with and I am happy! If you haven't checked out Pamela's stamps, you are missing out! She has some of the greatest choices you will find anywhere!
     I made this card to enter into the SCS sketch challenge SC261. As it turned out it was eligible for a couple more challenges......yippee!!!
Christian Papers Crafts -Bible verse Thursday
ABC Challenge  - L is for Layering

     I stamped the deer then masked him; stamped the tree and mountains for the background. I used a rounded edge stencil for making the clouds, and various colors of watercolor pencils for the valley floor, a marker for the grass. After finishing I decided I wanted to pop the deer up so I stamped him again, colored him and UTEED him and then used the dimensional pop up's to elevate him. You will probably be seeing more of him as well as the mountains and other cuties that come with this set!!
     The sponged background mat was made by using blue masking tape and sponging on SU! inks in various shades of blue for one side and various shades of green and beige/tan for the other side. I used a cosmetic sponge this time, first time I have tried one and I was pretty happy with the results.
     Thank you for dropping in, hope you are all adjusting to the new year, I am having a hard time remembering to write "10" on my checks!! LOL  Please feel free to stop by anytime and leave you comments!!
