Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 201

The theme for this fortnight's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is Animal Magic.

I've chosen to make another Christmas card, albeit one which is really just a wintry scene.

The background was created using Clarity masks and some die cut Sizzix clouds, and both Distress and Memento ink applied with Ink Dusters. The trees and deer were stamped using Versafine because I find it gives the clearest, blackest impression. The conifer stamps are from Circa Design, the other trees are Clarity. I'm afraid, I don't remember whose deer stamps they are. I didn't make a note when I go them and the packaging is long gone. I added a hint of shadow using a pencil, but kept it fairly high noon because I'm really not much of an artist. I love some of the gorgeous landscapes I see people do, and I'm awe of their talent. I definitely need to practice this technique, but in the meantime, I've got another Christmas card to add to my collection for next month.

I hope you can join us
