Merry Christmas, Deer!

Diana here getting a head start on Christmas cards this year.  It's only 3 months away!

For this Christmas card, and this week's challenge with the deer inspiration, I went with the colors, as well as making a scene with deer.

To start, I matted my die-cut using the large stitched die from MFT Blueprints 13, using the large die from the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and red card stock. 

The scene consists of the following dies: Impression Obsession Evergreen Trees, PoppyStamps Forest Deer, Impression Obsession Merry Christmas, and lots of Joy! Small Foam Pads. 

I used the Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive with the Art Institute Metal Tip, to adhere the thin lettering. 

The deer were cut from watercolor paper and colored with watercolor Brush Pens. After it dried, I went back and added the white markings with a white gel pen.

To make the snow on the trees, I used the Ice White - Viva Decor Pearl Pen and White Detail embossing powder. While the pearl pen was still wet, I add the powder and then used a heat gun to set it. The pearls bubbled up a bit - and I loved that the powder was not nice and clean - I couldn't make the scattered snow if I tried. 

Thanks for looking and I hope you get a chance to play along this week!
