We made through 2020 – I say that with a dramatic sweep of my brow and a loud “WHEW!” – how about you??

I have had the luxury of being off for holidays through the Christmas season and its been glorious! But next week it is back to work and reality….

This week I created a card for you using the wonderful set from your Subscription box- called Forest Friends. I love it – it is actually my FAVE set since I started on the DT and I can’t wait to play with it some more!

I loved creating that Distress Ink sky – I used an array of colors, from Stormy Sky, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire… blending them with some sweeeeeett Blending brushes from Nuvo…. they are a game changer! I gave that background just a spritz of water to add the look of a starry sky – perfection!

Next up I colored my sweet little forest deer using my alcohol markers and tried to decide how to show off all the color of that background…so I settled on using a dramatic black treeline using a die from Memory Box.

I stamped the sentiment in Nocturne Ink (Versafine CLAIR) and added just a few splashes of white ink. I am already dreaming up my next project with this stamp set. It really is adorable!

We really are missing some of our “deerest” people fiercely – so this card really hits home more than ever right now…

Thanks for stopping by~
