Happy Birthday Ralph!
You know when an idea pops into your head and you tell yourself, "Try it. It just might work." Well it did! Woo Hoo!
I thought it would be fun to use the deer from the Remembering Christmas stamp set as a silhouette in a forest. I made this card especially for Ralph, "Hunter Extraordinaire." Happy Birthday Ralph! Hope you have good luck this upcoming season!
I stamped the row of trees from Lovely As A Tree in Early Espresso ink on Sahara Sand card stock. I used a Blender Pen and various ink colors to give them a little color. I used sponges and various color inks for the sky and grassy area. After I was pleased with my background, I moved onto the focal point. I stamped the deer using Early Espresso ink. I wanted it to "really pop", so I then took the time to color in the image using my Early Espresso marker as well. I LOVE how it turned out! What an awesome stamp set that was intended for Christmas, but really made to be used anytime of year! LOVE it! I have to say, this has been one of my favorites I've made lately! Ralph, you should feel special! *smiles* Happy Stamping!
