Deer in Flight

Still playing with some cyber challenges... Today's card is for the Simon Says Stamp and Stuff challenge blog. We were to make something holiday related either Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas. So I thought this challenge was a great push to complete another two of my Christmas cards (I make two of each design):

The deer is embossed with Brown EP (Zing - this is wonderful dark brown color) then the deer was masked to stamp on the snowflakes using Pearl paint dabber:

Here you can see the paint resist after the blue and brown were blended on the background.

A close up of the multilevel snowflake:

Hmmm I need to check to see how many of my Christmas cards are completed...

Happy Creating!


The Stuff - Stamps, Distress Inks, Pearl Paint dabber (Tim Holtz); Snowflake (Spellbinders)
; Brown Embossing Powder (Zing)
