Hero Arts Color Layering Deer

This will be a super quick post.  I had a little time to play around with an awesome stamp set that I bought from Stamp Ink Paper's Online Store.  It's the Hero Arts Color Layering Deer Stamp and Die Set.  One of the facebook groups I am on, Stampers Swap Shop,  has a stenciled background challenge.  I thought I had a woodland background stencil but I didn't so I made a stencil from a sheet of acetate and a "Winter Forest" Die from  I tried to look the die up but it is likely retired as it wasn't pulling up on their website.  

Here's my card to share..

After I made the stencil, I used a ink blending tool to appy Tim Holtz Distress Peacock Feathers Ink.  My Deer was stamped using my Misti onto Neenah 110lb. Crest Solar White using Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Tip Top Taupe Ink.  I used my white gel pin to make some of the spots white on his back and to add a dot of white to his eye.  In retrospect, I should have used a white pigment ink for that layer that added the spots and shadows and probably a lighter color for his antlers.   I have more playing around to do for sure. The sentiment was added to the top layer with my Misti because honestly I can't seem to get a good sentiment on a top layer without it.  lol  I sure didn't want to take a chance of messing it up.  I added my deer with foam tape and added three sequins.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
