Winter Wood and Deer Mixed Media Card

Autumn with you today to share a wintry scene featuring our lovely Arched Fir Branch die.  What a gorgeous, rustic and elegant die this is!

I dipped two of the branch cuts into Distress Inks to create a frame of sorts.  I dabbed up the remaining ink and cut a circle from our Nesting Stitched Circles to stamp my sentiment.  I colored and fussy cut the deer with the same colors of ink.

I used texture paste through a handmade stencil for my background.  I layered a doily to break up the repetitive color.

I stamped text along the bottom to create a ground.  I applied a strip of tape across the bottom and wadded my hand dyed ribbon onto it.  What fun!
