Feature a Creature

Hello my friends and thank you for visiting my blog today.  The card that I'm here to share with you is one that I've made for this month's Stamping Sensations challenge and their theme is 'Feature a Creature.'  I thought that I'd get ahead with my Christmas cards by using a Create-a-Scene Christmas set by Sheena Douglass and all the stamps on this card are from the same set.


The colours that I've used are Impress Olive Green, Distress Tea Dye and Memento Rich Cocoa.  I started by stamping the deer with the Memento ink and then used a water colour brush to bring in the colour.  I then went a little crazy stamping lots of different sized trees to frame the deer. I used a branch stamp at the top of the card and also used the same stamp to create a frame on the background card.   I used Tea Dye around the edge of the picture and the background card to give the card more of a vintage feel. I added a bit of sparkle to the trees to give the effect of shimmering snow.   I'm happy with the end result and I hope that you like it too.  :)

I'm also entering the card into the following card challenges:
