A Simple Card

For some reason, Tim's deer has been calling for my attention lately. It is really beautiful with the flourishes through it. And yes, it's this bright. If you know this Bo Bunny Beautiful Life paper...the colors are very true here. You get this with layers and layers of ink on a light background.

I took manila paper and added Distress Inks to it. Stamped and embossed with Verdigris Antiquities. Then added Distress Rock Candy Crackle. That's why the antlers are so vibrant. The Crackle makes the colors really gorgeous.

I used the manila paper again for the sunset background. Many, many colors and layers. Then Tim's new Fabulous Flourish (my new ultimate accent!) Had to add the Flower and just still needed something.

The Film Strip was a perfect grounding for the deer and I used the little Paper Clips from Idea-ology to attach.

Some punched out stars with Suze's Champagne Glitz Stickles, a ribbon and we're done.

Just a simple card for a fun experience. I am sooooo easily amused!

Linda nothing you do is "simple". It may be a simple little card to you, but to us it's an amazing piece of colorful artwork with wonderful detail. Love, love, love it!! One of the things I like most, is that you used a Christmas deer but the card isn't a Christmas themed card, it's just an awesome card for any occasion.

Linda love the work you have been doing. I can see that the deer was calling your name. I think I must have that stamp.
