This is my "rustic" version using the deer, complete with the Woodgrain background and the beautiful new Brushed Bronze button from the Holiday Catalog. This must be a Utah deer because the deer I've seen in Ohio don't have bodies quite this big usually.
Here is my first attempt to recreate yesterday's card using the deer instead. I stamped him with Versamark ink then melted the Heat and Stick powder and immediately doused with Dazzling Diamonds glitter for some serious sparkle. In person, the detail of the antlers does show up much better. Hard to photo. This isn't the version we'll be making on Saturday at my annual Holiday Stamp-a-Stack either....
So what do you think? Do you like this as well as yesterday's card? I ended up using Marina Mist instead of Baja Breeze. I didn't have enough of the Baja cardstock and no time to order more... plus, Marina Mist is just my favorite blue anyway! If you have suggestions on how to improve this feel free to speak up. I'm unsure of the sentiment placement since this stamp isn't as symmetrical as the tree from yesterday. And I do miss the paper piercing, even though I don't think the deer would fit anyway. Hmmmm.
Thank you for stopping by, and for your comments! They do make a girl feel loved! Have a great day.
