Winter Wonderland

Hi everyone!
There is a new challenge over at Ike'sworld Challenges today, I have entered my make into Challenge #94 - Anything Goes with optional twist - Embossing
I used this lovely image 'Snow Deer

I created my card using wet and dry embossing




For the background I used the Distress Oxide, direct onto my craft mat and spritzed with water, then using a med flat brush I covered over the card top and bottom to create a lovely winter landscape, I then used the Vesamark Ink over the Oxide and applied the clear embossing powder then heat set to give extra effect to the winery scene.

I printed out the image twice, and cut out the deer I put the larger deer through the swirl embossing folder, then very lightly used the two distress inks directly over the top of the deer image and attached to the over the image on card.  The second deer I coloured using Spectrum Noir Colour Blend Pencils, Linen, Saddle Brown, Russet and also layered over the image on card.

I die cut the holly leaves then embossed and applied the Versamark ink, then applied the clear embossing powder and heat set and attached to the card.  I applied the Ranger Crystal Stickles on the bottom of card for a snowy glistening effect.

Lastly I printed out the words done in Serif Craft Artist2 and mounted onto the black card and attached with sticky foam pads, then I added the Ranger Crystal Stickles.
