Deer at Sunset

Hi, it is Diana here this afternoon! When I saw this week's inspiration photo for this week's CCNS Father's Day challenge, knew I wanted to use the Memory Box Leaping Deer against a sunset background.

To make a wooded sunset background, I used the Memory Box Garden Birch Trees stencil, and Dreamweaver Regular Embossing Paste, mixed with Wild Honey Distress Stain. I started from the top of my taped stencil and dragged the paste down using a Palette Knife. Since I only mixed a little bit, (didn't want to waste any since I don't want to put the mixed stain back into the container), I only had enough to go down 3/4 of the way. I then started from the bottom with some unmixed white paste. As I blended it with the stained paste, I got a lovely gradation of yellow. I removed the stencil and after it dried, I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to trim it down. I then placed the stencil back on and sponged Spiced Marmalade at the top to deepen the sunset effect.

To finish my scene, I added more die-cuts, using the Impression Obsession's Grass Border die and Rabbit Set. I added some shading to the deer with markers and popped him and the front bunny up with Joy Small Foam Pads.
