Such a Deer

How dear is this little deer!!!!! This is probably my favorite of the 4 newly released sets from Artful Inkables! All images that I used can be found in the Deer Friend set except the tree stump which is from Critter Country. See how awesome these 2 sets coordinate. If you buy one you know your gonna "have" to have the other! Truly stamping fun!!!! Be sure to check out the other gals blogs using this darling set:

I thought that Basic Gray Archaic would be perfect for this little nature scene. I originally purchased the 6 x 6 paper pad to make cards for my dinosaur crazed nephew Ryulee. His birthday is in January and I may end up buying another paper pad before it gets here! I love the prints for masculine and nature cards! I colored the image with Copic markers and "created" the ground cover with them, as well. This idea was cased from the fabulous Julie Ebersole on this card. I am totally blown away by this cool technique! For the "sky" I painted the background with Sky Blue Shimmerz and swirled around some Angel Wing Shimmerz. It does not show up as well in the photo as I hoped it would. Essentially it give the appearance of a nice, clear day! I was a bit challenged when I was coloring because my Colorless Blender and favorite Gray marker are out on loan (gasp) to someone interested in purchasing the markers. I thought I would not need them because I had completed the coloring of this little scene. Well.... apparently Rachel felt it needed something and added her own little touch or two! Can you say ruined- ahgggg! Be sure to check out the new discount label in the right hand column of my blog. Kristin has given each DT member a coupon code to share with our wonderful blog readers! These stamps really are too much fun to pass up! Stay tuned tomorrow for some super exciting news that will accompanied some yummy blog candy! Wishing you fun Times and inky fingers! Take care!
