This card was created using a new stamp set "In the Meadow," available on January 5th in the new Occasions Catalogue #140751 wood or #1405754 clear mount.
The technique I have used requires a very light touch with the aqua painter in order not to smudge the outline of the deer, which has been stamped in baked Brown Sugar on Stampin' Up! watercolour paper. I have used a quarter sheet for the focal image. The background was masked (I cut out a second image of the two deer on a post it note and stuck it over the stamped image while I sponged the background using soft sky, lost lagoon, and mossy meadow for the grass ).
The card was layered up on corrugated paper then mounted on a lost lagoon A5 card base.
The sentiment, from the stamp set, was stamped onto a scrap piece of watercolour paper that had been washed with mossy meadow.
Linen thread finishes the card.
