Oh deer, time to celebrate again?
Mixed media cardstock was treated with distress inks and water splotches, distress stains, distress paint and distress collage medium - both Crazing and Vintage. I die cut the Ornate Frame and accented the edges with more brown distress ink. Using the rectangle left over the from the inside I die cut 'celebrate'. I also cut one from a scrap of gray cardstock for the shadow.
The deer was stamped onto mixed media cardstock using archival ink and my new mini Misti. Then I stamped the image using distress ink. I was able to take a watercolor brush and pull the color toward the center yet still have defined lines. Love that new mini Misti for this technique! I cut the deer out and placed him in the frame but left his antlers outside the frame.
