I have a couple of backgrounds left from a crop in November where I made up a big collection of sponged backgrounds. I made this one for a masculine card. I just liked the blue to brown. For that crop I did not have my stash of woodland bits to try with it. I was pleasantly surprised when I put a prepped framed birch trees on this background and it went perfectly.
I sponged the deer with walnut stain and popped him up from behind a tree with dimensionals. I kept this card very simple. I used a lower case typewriter font sentiment for the happy birthday and popped it up with dimensionals as well.
Distress Ink colors:
Background: Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Walnut Stain
Deer: walnut Stain
Edge of tree frame: Hickory Smoke
Copic Sketch Markers:
Birch Trees: C1, C3, C5
Because we are currently living off the grid, I haven't investigated challenges for this card, but I wanted to get it posted asap. I will have full internet later today or tomorrow. It is just too cumbersome to figure out challenges on a cell phone.
Thanks for stopping by!
