I started with a Silhouette design I used once almost four years ago (see card here). That was for a vintage challenge; this time I was going with white on white but ended up coloring my offset layer with shades of blue Distress Oxide ink. I tried stenciling some birch trees behind but rejected that idea as too busy, given the flourishes on the deer. I spritzed the blue with a bit of water but the effect is very subtle. Wanted to use diamond stickles on the deer but the bottle was empty - dang! Instead used crystal ones which turned out fine. I had cut a bunch of white and black deer so decided to layer for a slight shadow effect.
Sorry for the bad photo; it was already clouding up here after a fairly sunny day. Thanks to Loll, Bonnie & team for another fun challenge!! And a big Happy Birthday to this fabulous challenge blog - one year old and going strong!!
