A stag do? No ...Its a bit deer!

Good Morning to you all in the land of blogger! It's a cold and Frosty one this morning! I have just been out to top up the fridge with food for the New Year Celebrations and to get bread and milk and a few other bits and pieces!

So now whilst Colin makes us a bit of breakfast....bacon butties....I thought I would share a couple of cards from the last Claritystamp show on Create and Craft at the start of December! These two cards used the Oak and deer set. I do like this set. 
The first one used the Deer's head and the Leaves. I started off by creating a background using Sandstone and rose red brushos. 
I let this dry then stamped the deer at the bottom in Brown archival. I then stamped the leaves in distress inks I used rusty hinge and spiced marmalade and Walnut stain.
I coloured the stag in with my whisper markers and then stamped one of the new words in Brown archival ink. I used Awesome from Word Chain 9 but to be honest any of the words would be great!

Here is the card

The next card I made a background on the Gelli Plate using the large leaves stencil. I made a heart shape using a piece of paper to make the aperture.
I stamped the deer in this space and then coloured him with whisper markers.
I stamped the solid leaf and the acorn in brown archival round the bottom of the heart shape. I love that little acorn!
I do think that the deer looks a very majestic animal so the work strength was used on the card from Word Chains 12 .

And here it is!

I hope you liked these two! Let me know what you think please by leaving a comment below!

Happy Crafting
