Deer Friend

For you my Deer
Hi everyone ,sorry for bad photo( it's under the weather) cause it has been raining the whole of yesterday and today so the picture is a bit darker~think of it, in 1-2 shade lighter  : ) . I normally take my picture using natural sunlight.
 Love this stamp too ! When I saw someone made a card with this deer image( a year or maybe 2 ago) , I said to myself I must buy it! That's how I found TGF(the greeting farm) stamps and fell in love with their stamps ! They are so cute! Love the different characters they have and good quality stamps too!(Sorry, I think this stamp is no longer available !So if yo have it , Lucky you!) Cause I no longer see it in their stamp collection. So for me if I see something I really- really like I would buy it . ( I miss out on some cute stamps .... -_-  am regretting now....)
I decided to make a scallop circle card (just brought this die, am loving it!) The 4 pieces of DP is a new from BG ~hopscotch ,....love the colours in the pad .Have painted the deer with distress inks and glossy accents the eye , nose and some parts of his body.Placed 2 buttons over a eline flower which I have glimmer mist(don't remember the colours I used.) and added a bow lace.He seems to be looking up ,so I placed a butterfly on the upper right corner.Love it ! It 's now sitting next to Flutter Anya!




Challenges I would love to enter are :


TGF M.Mon - Claudine
Simon says stamps - Animal Antic
LOTV - # 82 Anything but a square

You can see from the close-up picture a bit of the gloss on the eye and neck.Have also distress some pink on the SB die cut shape.Love how it looks with the buttons in the center with the bow.(Had to dig into my jar of pink buttons to look for a coral pink button to match this card)

I have used 3 different pattern paper that goes well together grunge them up a little, to keep it simple I just emboss the 3 flowers and add a bling to each.The 3 ribbons tied together creates an interesting bow to match the 3 leaves.

  I wanted to make this card using pink,aqua,white and green.Had found this Basic Grey paper which I have bought last week ,the colour is just right for my colour scheme . And its double sided , love double sided paper!!It so versatile to use.I cut out the flower and layered it on the same paper so that I could have the fairy standing on it !To make it Pop!there are some pearls and stickles on the big flower.I have also added leaves and a small white flower . Have randomly chosen  paper with these colours, found this pink My minds eye paper with glitter diamond pattern. After placing the papers together, I realized that it looks like my Quickutz diamond embossing die! So I added it as a background for my card to add some texture to it. Have added a pink ribbon behind the oval sentiment.
