* Colour Crazy: Deer Duo

I am still having trouble with Blogger. 
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments. For some reason, if you have comment moderation then I can comment. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!

I am delighted to be a Guest DT at the Colour Crazy Challenge blog for the next three months.

The challenge is always Anything Goes, but of course your card must feature some colouring using any medium you wish. This week Bugaboo is the sponsor.

I was lucky to receive a digi stamp to work with and I chose Deer Duo. I decided to work with non-traditional Christmas colours:

The background is ink blended on Art Card using Distress Inks. I used a birch tree die to cut tree trunks out of kraft card; I added some Vintage Photo ink to the edges of the tree trunks to make them stand out a bit more. The digi was coloured with Copics and added to the background on foam pads for dimension. I added a die cut sentiment. I matted the scene onto kraft card, distressed and inked the edges and then placed it onto a white card base. 

 That's all from me for today!
