Let's take a closer look... 

I started by stamping the deer in Fadeout ink, then watercoloring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Coloring tip: When doing no-line coloring, it is can be easy to lose small details... like the highlights in the eyes... Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White is great for adding the details back in. It can cover even dark colors completely, and it won't pick up the color underneath. 

Once the deer was colored, I used the coordinating die to cut it out.

For the background, I chose a monochrome patterned paper, then stenciled in some snowflakes with Tattered Rose distress ink. Before moving the stencil, I dripped a couple drops of Liquid Pixie Dust onto a make-up wedge, and pounced it through the stencil.. I wasn't going for full coverage, I just wanted some soft sparkle in the snowflakes.

The result is a soft background with frosty sparkle... so pretty!

Now to shabby it up a bit.... I used a distressing tool to tatter the edges, then I used my sewing machine to go around the edge to create a stitched border. 

(yes, I use my sewing machine for paper more than fabric.... )

I chose a foiled cardstock to cover my card base, then attached my stenciled piece to the card with some foam tape. I also attached the deer with some foam tape.

Finally, I die cut the 'you're a deer' sentiment from some metallic paper to tie back in to the foiled base.

So what do you think??? Do you love these new Oh Deer stamps and dies?
