They're peeking back at us!

Good morning, peeps!

I think these deer must be curious about the launch of wor Sheena's new stamps and embossing folders because they're doing sneaky peeks back at us from their forest home!

Don't worry, I haven't quite lost it totally but we Inkoids are always talking about 'sneak peeks' at forthcoming releases and it rather looks like the deer are taking a sneak peek at us in this card!

To create this card, I first brayered the Holly embossing folder with Versamark and, after it had been through the eBosser, I heat embossed the holly pattern.  I then cut between the holly twig pattern to create the two halves, which I pushed apart to create the aperture.  Multiple shades of green Distress Ink were then used to colour the holly and I also used the Distress Ink to paint the stamped holly leaves that are mounted with Collall 3D Gel on top of the embossed panels.  The trees from one of the new A5 stamp plates (Country Christmas) were stamped on to the background card, again using Distress Ink and the deer were coloured with Spectrum Noir pens, cut out separately and mounted 3D.

I seem to be a bit tuck on traditional Christmas colours this year but I hope you like it.

Sheena's shows are:

Monday 21 July at 8.00 a.m., 1.00, 6.00 and 8.00 p.m.
Tuesday 22 July at 9.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m.
Wednesday 23 July at 2.00 and 9.00 p.m.
Thursday 24 July at 1.00 and 5.00 p.m.

If the insomnia bites, there are quite a few repeats of shows in the middle of the night too!

Thank you for looking today and I'll be back tomorrow to show you another sample.
